Puttlam district UNP parliamentarian Palitha Range Bandara has written to Speaker W.J.M. Lokubandara seeking additional security because he fears he could be the target of attack by members of a former militant group from the east.
Mr. Range Bandara said in a letter to the Speaker that since his Madampe house and office were set on fire last week, he noted that he was regularly being followed by two unidentified motorcyclists.
The Speaker in response has assured the MP that he would take up the matter with the IGP and have his security increased.
Meanwhile the MP yesterday took part in a ritual at the Aiyanayaka develaya in Anamaduwa where he broke coconuts, seeking divine intervention to punish those who burnt down his house and office.
Mr. Range Bandara charged he had identified the suspects but the police had taken little or no action.
