By Don Asoka Wijewardena

The Kananke police have arrested the driver of a vehicle which knocked down dental surgeon Dr. Jannaki Bandusena of the Matara General Hospital on Nov. 24.

A senior GMOA spokesman told The Island that Dr. Bandusena had died as a result of the accident in the Mirissa police area.

The Kananke police moved in as the suspect evaded the Matara police.

The police identified the suspect as a soldier. He was to be produced before the Matara Magistrate.

Dentists and dental surgeons of the Matara hospital launched a one-day token strike on Monday demanding the immediate arrest of the suspect.
