Ten former PSD officers have been ordered to pay Rs. 2 million compensation to Rukantha and Chandraleka in their harassment case along with four and half year prison sentences.

The former PSD officers of Chandrika Bandaranaike stood accused of breaking into the home of the popular singing duo Rukantha Gunathilaka and Chandraleka Perera in Mattegoda and harassing them.

The Panadura High Court sentenced the ten suspects today (August 1).

Nine of the ten suspects received four and half years of rigorous imprisonment while the other suspect, who is disabled, received a four and half year sentence of simple imprisonment.

Each of the suspects were also ordered to pay Rs.100,000 each to both Rukantha and Chandraleka which amounted to a total of Rs.2 million in compensation.

They will serve an addition one year of simple imprisonment if the amounts cannot be paid.

The seventh defendant in the case was released without charges by the court.
