July 28, Colombo: Leader of Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Anura Kumara Dissanayaka was injured today in a road accident.

Dissanayaka was injured when the vehicle he was travelling met with an accident on Horana - Ratnapura road at Ballapitiya and admitted to Ratnapura Hospital, the party said in a statement.

Dissanayaka has internal injuries in his chest and is to be transferred to Colombo, the party said citing hospital sources.

However, a party spokesman told BBC Sinhala Service that Dissanayaka's injuries were not life threatening.

JVP leader's vehicle has collided head-on with a tipper vehicle when it was passing another tipper vehicle, the police have said.

Drivers of both vehicles were also admitted to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
