Sandeep cannot remember being knocked down by Minister’s SUV

Sandeep Sampath Gunawardena, who received serious injuries after the motorcycle he was riding was knocked down by Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka’s SUV in late February, yesterday, said that he could not remember anything about the accident.

Gunawardena was discharged from the Rehabilitation Hospital on Tuesday and now he is receiving treatment at his home in Pitipana, Homagama.

"I can only remember returning from a function at the BMICH on the fateful day," he said.

His father Dayananda Gunawardena said, "We are at his bedside day and night. He is still unable to attend to many physical functions like walking without assistance."
