Kandy Additional Magistrate Thanuja Jayatunge Friday ordered remand till October 18 for Ranjan Ramanayake, Ratnapura district parliamentarian of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) when he was produced in court on a complaint of defrauding one million rupees from a female teacher on the promise of marriage. He was arrested in Colombo Thursday afternoon and later taken to Kandy where the complaint was lodged.

Ramanayake informed court that he was prepared to return the money but the police objected saying investigations were not over.
