An investigation is underway after an individual had reported that he was assaulted in Nawala yesterday.
He was assaulted by a group of men who arrived in a three-wheeler.
According to reports, the man had arrived home in Nawala in a cab and was about to walk down a lane leading to his house when around 4-5 men arrived in a three-wheeler.
They had asked for the ID of the individual but he had refused to submit it as the men were not the Police or military.
He was then assaulted by at least one man and later the group had left. (Colombo Gazette)
