By Cyril Wimalasurendre

KANDY – Villagers, in their numbers, rushed to get a glimpse of a ‘mysterious’ piece of steel which had fallen from the sky into the garden of a house at Deegala in the Alawathugoda police area, yesterday 23.

The object was first spotted by some mothers who had escorted their children to the village school in the morning.

The Alawathugoda police visited the scene and provided security to the object pending investigations.

According to ASP Chamika Premasiri, about eight inches of the object was above the surface while about four inches of it was embedded in the ground.

However, Senior DIG, H. N. B. Ambanwale deployed a team of STF personnel, who after examining it had expressed the view that the object would have been a part of a flare used by security forces.

Further investigations are continuing.
