Former Sri Lanka cricket captain and politician Arjuna Ranatunga on Tuesday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan and commended his government for the diligent efforts to deliver justice to the barbaric, violent crime committed against Priyantha Kumara Diyawadanage.

In a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan, Ranatanga who has played international cricket with Imran Khan, pointed out the close ties between the two countries in both cricket and external affairs.

He also extended his gratitude to Imran Khan and his government for the continued support and commitment shown towards Priyantha Diyawa-dana’s family.

“As you have reiterated in the media, such vio-lent, vigilante behavior should be strongly con-demned. It is important to understand that these acts are carried out by a small section of the population, and that a whole nation should not be judged on the actions of a few, especially considering the long-standing relationship between our two nations,” he wrote.—AFP
