Earlier this morning, the police arrested event organiser Chandimal Jayasinghe and model Piumi Hansamali for organising a birthday party at the hotel, violating quarantine regulations. They were later granted bail by the Hulfsfrops Magistrate.
It was reported that at least 25 persons had attended the party.
Police has identified several persons while investigations are underway to identify others through the CCTV footages. All gatherings, parties, weddings etc have been prohibited by the government until further notice due to the spread of COVID-19
