The bail application submitted by former Senior DIG Ravi Seneviratne who had been on remand for driving under the influence of liquor and causing damage to two other vehicles was rejected by Mount Lavinia Additional Magistrate Sanjaya L.M. Wijesinghe.

He submitted the bail application through a special motion.

The retired Senior DIG was arrested by the Wellawatta police after he had caused damages to two vehicles parked in front of a hotel at Muhudu Mawatha in Wellawatta at about 1.20 am on Sunday (29). A breathalyzer test had established that he was under the influence of liquor at the time of the accident.
