Aug 01, Colombo: General Secretary Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Tilvin Silva today rejected the allegations against the party over killing of popular TV presenter and songwriter Premakeerthi de Alwis.

Referring to the reports that the wife of late Mr. Alwis, Nirmala de Alwis had urged the President yesterday to investigate the killing again, the JVP Secretary said the individuals who say that they love Premakeerthi so much can probe his wife's complaint.
