(July 04, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) A JVP candidate for the up coming Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council election Anura Rajapaksa was allegedly assaulted by Minister (Non-Cabinet) Premalal Jayasekera on Thursday night, JVP sources said.

The incident had occurred when Mr.Rajapaksa was pasting a poster at Nivithigala when Minister Jayasekera along with a group of men came in a van and dragged him into it and assaulted him inside the vehicle.

Later he was taken to a public ground at Nivithigala, assaulted once again and then the minister had allegedly kept a pistol close to the JVP candidate’s ear and fired it. As results of it, Mr.Rajapaksa has become deaf in one ear, the JVP sources added.
