Oct 08, Colombo: The driver of Sri Lanka Deputy Minister of Disaster Management Duleep Wijesekara today obtained the document pertaining to a spot fine of Rs. 1,000 for exceeding the speed limit on the Colombo-Galle expressway.
The Deputy Minister was caught red handed as he was speeding his vehicle on the Southern Expressway exceeding the maximum speed limit of 100 km per hour.
Police say the Minister who drove the vehicle at the speed of 169 km per hour has rejected to accept the spot fine given to him at the Kottawa exit point.
Instead, the Deputy Minister had thrown Rs. 1,500 towards the police officer who issued the spot fine which the police had returned, police reported.
Sri Lanka police said last week that the conduct of the Deputy Minister would be reported to the Speaker of the parliament and the Inspector General of Police.
