Former Deputy Minister Sarana Gunawardena, who was in custody for allegedly assaulting a person, has been released on bail by the Gampaha Magistrate on Wednesday (09) morning. 

The former Minister was released on two personal bails of Rs.50,000 each, Ada Derana reporter said.

Three other suspects, who were in custody over the incident, were enlarged on personal bails earlier.

Former Deputy Minister Gunawardena and the others were remanded for alleged assault on the person during the General Election 2015. The Police summoned Gunawardena last month following a complaint filed by the person who accused the former Deputy Minister of assaulting him over an election related issue.
