Ramith Rambukwella does it again : Knocks down two undergrads at Nawala

Ramith Rambukwella, cricketer and son of Joint Opposition MP, Keheliya Rambukwella was arrested on Friday night by the Narahenpita Police. Confirming the report, SP Ruwan Gunasekara said he was arrested for driving while intoxicated.

Police sources said Rambukwella had almost run over two undergraduates of the Open University in Nawala and had then gone on to attack another student during a confrontation with bystanders following the accident.

The students involved in the accident had only sustained minor injuries according to the Police. However, the individual attacked by Rambukwella had also lodged a complaint with the Police regarding the assault.

The Police media unit later claimed the individual had withdrawn his complaint and had come to a settlement with Rambukwella.

While Police confirmed he was intoxicated over the legal limit through a breathalyzer test conducted, Police media unit said he was released on bail yesterday.

Ramith Rambukwella was involved in yet another accident in 2016 when he was accused of drunk and reckless driving.

However, at the time he only plead guilty to the charge of reckless driving.
