(Daily Mirror / 15MAR2005)
The Army Comander has appointed a four-member Court of Inquiry to investigate a motor accident involving an Army Colonel and a female army deserter, who were injured.
Maradana police said a car belonging to an army officer crashed into a parapet wall in Maradana early on March 5. The officer and the woman companion who were injured in the accident were admitted to the military hospital.
They said that according to the army officer's statement to the Police, at the time of the accident the officer and his driver were returning from a get-together held at the Millennium Park, where senior and junior military officers were present.
They claimed that a female deserter who wanted to surrender to the police was also in the vehicle. At Maradana the car skidded off the road and hit a nearby wall injuring the officer and the woman occupant.
The Court of Inquiry headed by Deputy Chief of Staff Susil Chandrapala includes Brig. Chandrawansa, Col. G.R.H. Dias and Col. Samaratunga.
