Fire destroys Chandrasekaran's Colombo residence

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 March 2006, 01:43 GMT]
Nuwara Eliya district parliamentarian and Leader of Upcountry Peoples Front (UPF), Mr Periyasamy Chandrasekaran's residence in Kepitikollawa in Colombo was destroyed by fire at 10.30 p.m. Monday, sources from Colombo said. No one was injured in the incident and the cause of the fire is under investigation, Cinnmon Garden police said.

Mr Chandrasekaran was returning from Nuwara Eliya when the incident happened. His wife, Mrs Shanthinidevi Chandrasekaran, their two daughters and friends visiting them managed to vacate the residence when the fire broke out.

Colombo firebrigade took nearly two hours to bring the fire under control.

The residence is Sri Lanka Government owned and Mr Chandrasekaran has been resident there from 2002. The place is close to the Summit flats used by most of the parliamentarians, according to sources.
