The North Western Provincial Councillor Ananda Sarath Kumara who was remanded for allegedly punishing a female teacher was granted bail today (June 27).

The Councillor was arrested for allegedly punishing a school teacher and was remanded by Puttalam Magistrate’s Court.

He was expelled from the SLFP and barred from contesting future polls and is expected to resign from the council.

The Provincial Councilor was arrested by police in the Adigama area in Anamaduwa today while traveling towards Chilaw in a vehicle.

He was taken to the Anamaduwa Police Station to record a statement and then produced before the Puttalam Acting Magistrate Mohamed Iqbal.

The UPFA Provincial Council member is accused of punishing a female teacher of the Navagattegama Navodya School by making her kneel down, after she reportedly warned the Kumara’s daughter regarding her uniform.

The teacher had later lodged a complaint with the police over the incident.
