Malaka at it again

A police complaint has been lodged against Malaka Silva, the son of Minister Mervyn Silva, over an assault incident at a hotel in Colombo.

The police said that Malaka Silva had allegedly assaulted an army officer at the hotel late last night and also attempted to take away his weapon.

The army officer was admitted to hospital following the assault incident and investigations are underway, the police said.

In 2007 Malaka Silva was arrested by the police following an incident where he was alleged to have assaulted a man at a restaurant in Bambalapitiya.
