When The case was called before the Pugoda Magistrates’ Courts the preliminary hearings with regard to the Murder Case of Mr.David Amarasinghe, 47 years older bachelor , whose death had been occurred on 14th August 2010, while in the custody of Kirindiwela police station , Pugoda Magistrate and the additional district Judge Mr. Aravinda Perera ordered to reconsider the advices given by the Solicitor General , ordering the release the Sub Inspector Kularathne and the Police Constable Luksman Silva who are the suspects of this case, and ordered to remand the suspects again.
It appears that some special attention has been given to this case, since advice has been sent specially for this case leaving all other cases aside which were sent for legal advices, said the judge and ordered to the police to inform to the Solicitor General to reconsider on this case.
The Complainant’s lawyer, Attorney at Law Mr, Lakshman Dias said that giving special attention to this much published case, while there are several cases sent for his advices, shows the fact that some irregular interference is made on this case. Also the progress so far regarding the case is, only the submitting of the post mortem report. Giving this kind of advices by the Solicitor General, while there are several evidence including eye witnesses could be considered as going beyond the law. And the Lawyer requested from the Magistrate to note down his disagreement regarding this matter.
Although the police is saying that David Amarasinghe has died due to his jumping out from the jeep while he was taking to the Kirindiwela police station after the arrest, the post mortems report which was submitted to the Courts recently states that the death had been occurred due to the wounds in the head caused by some blunt force made on the head.
This case is called by the court once in every 2 weeks and the last hearing calling was on 18th March and the next hearing will be 30th March
