Yohan Perera and Kelum Bandara
Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesighe in Parliament yesterday charged that the government which is unable to apprehend Grease Devils  had only ended up arresting a photo journalist from Udayan Newspaper. Mr. Wickremesighe informed Parliament that the journalist was arrested when he was trying photograph a commotion which took place when 17 persons were arrested over the grease devil issue was brought to Courts on Monday.

Meanwhile, a comment made by TNA MP S. Sritharan that a suspected grease devil had been seen running inside an army camp resulted in an uproar with Chief Government Whip Dinesh Gunawardene requesting the MP to withdraw his statement. “You should come out with exact information mentioning the names of the military officers involved in it,” he said.
