‘Nose-Biter’ MP Surrenders

By Colombo Telegraph –

UNP MP Dunesh Gankanda from the Ratnapura District who has gone hiding from the Police has surrendered to the Colpetty Police a short while ago through his lawyer the Police said. The MP was wanted in connection for causing grievous bodily harm on a businessman at a night club in Colombo last Saturday.

Dunesh, Kushani with Amitabh

Dunesh Gankanda walked up to Diwakran, a Tamil businessman at The Museum club in Galle face hotel around 1.30am early morning on Sunday. Dunesh was accompanied by Capt. Senaka De Silva, a close aide of General Fonseka. Diwakaran was introduced by this mutual friend to Dunesh.

Dunesh and Senaka free loaded alcohol on Diwakaran’s table. Diwakaran is a teetotaler but was entertaining some oversea clients and hence had bottles of alcohol on his table. Dunesh initially made small talk and then broached on the topic of Raju Radha his current wife Kushani Nannayakara’s Ex Husband. She is the daughter of Capt. and Mrs. Norma Nannayakara of Green Lanka Shipping Ltd.

Raju Radha, the son of the famous Indian actor M R Radha, is the owner of HRC Shipping and other businesses. His sister Radhika is also a popular Indian actress. Their mother is Sri Lankan.

When Diwakaran said he knew Raju well and Raju was a relative – out of the blue Dunesh lunged forward, bit Diwakaran’s nose and then disappeared into the Crowd in the night club. Diwakaran didn’t hit back although bleeding profusely and in pain.

He got himself admitted to Gerenal hospital and had a surgery there. Sunday morning, he got himself discharged from General hospital and readmitted at Nawaloka where he underwent second surgery in the evening. He made a police complaint.
Dunesh Gankanda has a history with violence under influence of alcohol. He has assaulted his mother’s sister, one member of MSD, one bodyguard, one female maid servant, etc. He threatened to assault his 17 and a half year step son two years ago and last month verbally assaulted his 17 and a half year step daughter, resulting in a possible legal issue between the Radha’s and the UNP MP.

The family is attempting to resolve this matter without the intervention of the Police, but the businessman so far has resisted all pressure. The UNP leadership is aware of this disgraceful incident, but only closely watching the development with the Police without any interference. Since the UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe is in New Zealand, the acting Leader John Amaratunghe, the former Minister of Interior in charge of the Police is currently in charge of the Party.

Updated 10.15 AM

Colombo Fort Magistrate has released Gankanda who was produced before the court over the assault, on bail.

    It is the expected duty of an Opposition UNP MP to underscore the shortage of food and meat in the country. But this is a somewhat unorthodox way. Obviously, the man has a sickening history of violence and beastly behaviour after Bacchus.

    Certainly, we see a new breed of MPs in Parliament now. That obese man from Galle happily says phychiatrists have declared him sane and, for good measure, carries the document with him wherever he goes. He was quick to say there are many others in Parliament needing certification.
    You’re telling me?

    @Yes, The man has serious family, marriage and step children as well as alcohol problems. He definitely needs medical and psychological help. His long history is characteristic of his dysfunctional behavior, and he is one of the “rebel UNP MP’s” is not surprising. He is partying with Fonseka aide, Captain Senaka Silva at 2 AM in night clubs, says something..

    UNP MP Dunesh Gankanda was granted bail a short while ago by the Colombo Fort magistrates court.

    Gankanda was released on a Rs. 30,000 cash bail with two sureties of Rs. 100,000 each. The lawyers appearing for Gankanda argued that under section 216 of the penal code the offence was a bailable one.

    The next hearing is set for the 23rd of August.

    Whenever I see or hear about morons like this MP, I feel sick and want to puke. They epitomise what is wrong with Sri Lankan society, and why this nation is not developing. We have mentally retarded, violent people in the parliament. The sole reason that they have got in is to make themselves rich, to seek publicity for themselves and to get a social status. The mental make up and qualities are those of yakshas that we read of in old texts. Who are the people responsible for this state of affairs. It is the very leaders, whatever the color of their parties; they seek votes in the villages through these morons, and later get subjugated by the morons, unable to act against them. The leaders that carry on with the ancient feudal system in Sri Lanka, and support these morons are themselves morons and yakkas. I have no other words for them. God help Sri Lanka, if he could, but I am sure he is also abandoning this hell hole.
