Uduwe Dhammaloka Indicted Over Elephant Case, Released On Bail

Buddhist monk Uduwe Dhammaloka was served with a charge sheet today for possessing a baby elephant without a valid license. The monk was however released on bail by the Colombo High Court.

He was released on two sureties of Rs. 10 million each, even though he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The case will be taken up again in August.

In March this year, Dhammaloka was arrested and subsequently granted bail over the case.
