the bodyguard of state minister Lohan shot at a barked dog 

During a visit to Vadamarachi, Jaffna, the bodyguard of former convict turned Sri Lankan state minister Lohan Ratwatte, turned his pistol on a barking pet dog that approached the minister.

Last September, Media revealed that Ratwatte reportedly forced Tamil inmates detained in the Anuradhapura prison to kneel down at gunpoint on Sunday. Ratwatte was allegedly under the influence of alcohol when he entered the premises and demanded Tamil prisoners perform the humiliating act. 

A day before that, the media had reported that he had come to the Welikada prison at night with a group of people and tried to visit the gallows and abused the officials there by saying obscenities.
