Docs’ alleged drag-racing claims life
By Shane Seneviratne
An elderly man was knocked dead by a drag-racing car allegedly driven by four doctors attached to Kandy General Hospital on Friday night.

The accident took place in Suduhumpola junction when the man was hit first by a car allegedly driven by a doctor and later hit again by a vehicle driven by another doctor. Four cars were said to be involved in the racing.

The four doctors were apparently returning from a restaurant in William Gopallawa Road. The victim had been allegedly admitted to the accident ward by the doctors without reporting the incident to the Police Post.

The victim’s relatives claim that the body was kept in the ward for a long time before being transferred to the morgue.
