Dec 29, Colombo: The Ududumbara Police on Wednesday (27) arrested a Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) candidate contesting for the Ududumbara Pradeshiya Sabha Senarath Bandara Halyala, who was the former chairman of the Ududumbara Pradeshiya Sabha, and three of his supporters for pasting posters in the Kaluntenna area in violation of election laws.

The District Judge also released the vehicle used for pasting posters on a bond of Rs. 6 million.

The judge ordered the police to inform the court again on January 18 regarding the case.
