CDS-DG’s jeep catches fire (video)

The jeep in which the Civil Security Department (CSD) Director General Chandraratne Pallegama was travelling in had caught fire.

The vehicle had caught fire due to a technical fault. No one was hurt in the incident.

Pallegama’s jeep had caught fire while he was on his way to participate in the President’s ‘Rata wenuwen ekata sitimu’ programme in Mulaithivu.

Having pumped fuel in Paranthan the driver had driven for about 10 km and stopped as the vehicle was overheating.
The vehicle had caught fire after Pallegama and the others had got off the vehicle.

The jeep belongs to the CSD.
