Prison officer attacked, threatened with death | Sri Lanka News

Three unidentified armed men who arrived at the Minuwangoda home of a prison officer attached to the New Magazine Prison in Colombo, had attacked and threatened him with death yesterday.

Prison spokesman Chandana Ekanayake said the incident was reported early morning on Friday and the officer's mother had also been attacked by the suspects.

The spokesman said the armed men, who arrived wearing jackets and covering their faces at the officer's Minuwangoda home had threatened the prison officer stating, “What kind of a person are you to stop heroin in the prison when anyone can't stop drug trafficking in the country?” They had also attacked the officer's mother, taken his sister's mobile phone and smashed it on the floor and then had made the officer kneel down and handcuffed him before taking photographs and leaving the house.

The spokesman said the officer had lodged a complaint on the incident with the Minuwangoda police. He is currently undergoing treatment at the Minuwangoda Hospital.

The Colombo New Magazine Prison has also commenced an investigation into this incident. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
