Police on the hunt for Paba’s husband

Mirihana Police are still on the lookout for the husband of parliamentarian Upeksha Swarnamali, popularly known by her TV personality name Paba, who was allegedly assaulted by him. She is undergoing treatment at the Jayewardenepura General Hospital since Tuesday.

The MP had made a statement to the Police from her hospital bed on Thursday that her husband had hit her following an argument while they were travelling in the car. The couple had been seated in the back seat, while her two security men had been in front, one of them driving the vehicle.

The security men had intervened to prevent her being further attacked and taken her to hospital. Following her complaint, several Police attempts to contact the suspect have failed. A Police team has been deployed near the parliamentarian’s house at Madiwela to apprehend the suspect, Chief Inspector Senarath Egodawela said.
