Ranjan's prison card issued Featured

MP Ranjan Ramanayake, who was sentenced to four years RI over contempt of court, has been issued a prisoner number.

Accordingly, he will henceforth be known as prisoner - N 12516 at the Angunakolapelessa Prison.

It is reported that Mr. Ramanayake has been put to a work party at the prison.

However, it is said that Mr. Ramanayake is being given quite the royal treatment by his fellow inmates, who do not even allow him to lift a finger and do not let him eat the prison food rations, reports say.

However, he is compelled to clean himself using a bucket at the outdoor water tanks reserved for other inmates.

Regardless of being treated thus by inmates, it is said that Dilip Wedaarachchi is the only politician who has visited him recently.

Makeshift workout tools
Despite being imprisoned, Mr. Ramanayake is said to be reportedly following his own exercise regime to maintain his physical figure. Reports say that he had made a makeshift set of weights using two 5-litre water bottles and a stick.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the work party is less busy and most inmates tend to play sports regardless of the scorching temperatures. However, Mr. Ramanayake does not join them, reports say.

Following his imprisonment, Ranjan has also completely shorn off his hair.
