Colombo Additional Magistrate Rajindra Jayasuriya gave the order when Bathiudeen, his wife, and his father-in-law were produced in court today.
Meanwhile, Bathiudeen’s brother-in-law and the broker who had brought the girl to the former Minister’s residence was ordered to be released on bail.
The wife and father-in-law of the Parliamentarian and a broker were arrested in July over the death of a 16-year-old girl at his residence in Colombo.
The MP’s brother-in-law was arrested over allegations of sexually abusing a 22-year-old domestic worker at the residence of the MP between 2015-2019.
The girl had claimed she was sexually abused twice by the MP’s brother-in-law. (Colombo Gazette)
