Mar 24, Colombo: Candidate of Sri Lanka's Democratic Party at the forthcoming Western Provincial Council (WPC) has been assaulted by unidentified assailants.

The police told the media today that Kalutara District candidate of the Democratic Party, K.A. Nishantha was found assaulted with his hand tied together inside his vehicle.

Nishantha, according to the police, was attacked by an unidentified group in Dikpitiya, Mathugama this morning.
