Ranjan Ramanayake arrested

UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayaka was arrested by the police a short while ago

The reason for the actor’s arrest was not clear, but the spokesperson said it was probably over a complaint of fraud made by a woman some time ago.

The actor was picked up from a friend’s home in Colombo around 3.15 pm he added.

MP Ramanayake was later scheduled to be moved out to the central hill capital of Kandy where the woman’s complaint has been lodged.

Mr. Ramanayake is expected to be produced before the Kandy magistrate tomorrow. An anticipatory bail application filed by him was rejected earlier.
