The most notable characters among them were the organizer of the Airport Taxi Service Bandara and its President Podi Vimal.


03.      Dr. Vickramabahu's colleagues rallied round him and sent him out of the Airport in a vehicle.


04.      When some of his colleagues, V. Thirunavakkarasu and Shantha Wejeysuriya were travelling out of the airport, a gang followed them, attacked them and damaged the vehicle (vehicle no 258-7286)   belonging to Dr. Vickramabahu.


05.      Complaints were made also to the Kompanna vidiya and Kandana Police Stations.


Though complaints were made to these above - mentioned Police Stations, no legal action has been instituted so far.
