"I wasn’t under the influence of liquor at the time of the incident’

JVP Propaganda Secretary and Gampaha District MP Vijitha Herath denied allegations that he had been under the influence of liqour when a double cab driven by him met with an accident at Rajagiriya in the early hours of yesterday. The Welikada police arrested him though he was given bail later in the day.

The Colombo bound double cab driven by the MP had skidded off the road causing damage to a telephone post near the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) around 12.30am yesterday.

He was released on police bail. The damaged party vehicle is in police custody and Welikada police are conducting the investigations. MP Herath said that an attempt was being made to tarnish his image.
