The Supreme Court today rejected a petition filed by the aunt of underworld leader Makandure Madush, seeking a restraining order preventing the police from arresting him.
A. W. Sriyani, a younger sister of the mother of Makandure Madush had filed a Fundamental Rights petition in the Supreme Court.

The Police had earlier sought to have Madush deported to Sri Lanka to be arrested and investigated over allegations against him.
Makandure Madush’s family sought court intervention to prevent his arrest in Sri Lanka.
The SC however today rejected the petition. (Colombo Gazette)
