A married man of Ampitiya developed a liking towards a young woman walking on the pavement of Kandy daily after work but could not express his feelings to her as he was dumb. Recently, he spat on her out of frustration.
The young woman lodged a complaint with the police and the man was prosecuted by the Children’s and Women’s Bureau of the Kandy police.
During initial inquiries the man claimed he had spat on her accidentally.
However, in the Magistrate’s court the married man admitted that he had spat on the woman.
The Magistrate Indika Attanayake after giving a hearing to the story related by the dumb lover released him on three sureties amounting to Rs. 100,000 each.
The incident happened close to a supermarket in Kandy.
