UNP Anuradhapura District Parliamentarian Chandima Gamage's supporters assaulted a 39-year-old driver attached to Lanka Sathosa in front of the Kekirawa police station yesterday noon.

The driver, who was beaten mercilessly by the MP's henchmen, is being treated at the Kekirawa hospital.

The driver was assaulted for tooting the horn as the MP's vehicle was parked near the Kekirawa police station obstructing the road.

The victim said he had sounded the horn as he wanted to reverse his vehicle to unload some goods at the Lanka Sathosa outlet there.

Police confirmed the incident but had not been able to arrest any supporter until this edition went to print.
