A 21-year-old individual, who reportedly impersonated as a doctor, has been arrested by the police at the Dambulla Base hospital on Sunday (12) morning.

The police have also found an identity card believed to be a fake in which it says it was issued by the U.S. Department of Science & Health (Doctors).

The suspect has been identified as K.A. Harshana Maduranga Bandara who is a resident of Medirigiriya.

“The individual had been walking towards the operation theater at the time another senior doctor questioned him about his background details. Following the suspicious behaviour, the doctor in return has notified the police, what triggered the arrest,” a police officer said.

The police is yet to disclose the motive behind his actions.

Bandara will be produced before the Dambulla Magistrate today.
