Premachandra was arrested after the Attorney General advised the police to take her into custody in relation to the incident.
She was produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court and released on bail.
A vehicle belonging to Premachandra was earlier seized and eight people arrested over the abduction incident.
The police said that the suspects were arrested after a youth claimed he was abducted by them in the vehicle which belonged to the MP in the Dematagoda area.
A group of security officers of Premachandra were accused of abducting 34-year old Amila Priyanga of Gothatuwa from a textile shop in Dematagoda.
Premachandra said she was not directly involved in the incident but was aware of it and added that it was done when her officers intervened in a private issue.
She claimed that the Priyanga was taken by her staff members in an irresponsible manner to urge him not to break the family of someone known to her and her security detail.
Amila Priyanga claimed that he was abducted by the men and taken to a location in Kollonawa where Premachandra herself was present.
Priyanga also claimed that Premachandra threatened him and assaulted him, an allegation she denies.
The entire incident was captured on CCTV cameras which was later used by the police to arrest the suspects. (Colombo Gazette)
