The EPDP led by Minister Douglas Devananda has suspended the membership of EPDP Jaffna Municipal Council member S. Vijayakanth with immediate effect.
Vijayakanth was suspended after he was arrested by the police yesterday over his alleged involvement in criminal activities in Jaffna.
The EPDP said that Vijayakanth was suspended from the party in order to ensure investigations into the allegations against him are conducted fairly.
The political party also said that all activities scheduled by Vijayakanth have also been suspended. (Colombo Gazette)
