Dec 17, Colombo: Former secretary of Sri Lanka opposition United National Party (UNP) affiliated National Lawyers' Association senior counsel Gunarathna Wanninayaka has lodged a complaint in police that four armed men attempted to assault him today.

The incident has taken place outside his house in Boralesgamuwa in the outskirts of Colombo as he was returning home from work.
