The Magistrate further directed the Secretary General of the Sri Lanka's parliament Ms Priyani Wijesekara to submit a report on the ownership of the vehicle, which according to police investigation belonged to a former parliamentarian and PLOTE leader Mr.Dharmalingam Siddarthan.

The court on an earlier date ordered the release of the vehicle to Mr.Siddarthan.
