Soon after he was admitted to the hospital, defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa arrived and spent around and hour there.
Lakshman Hulugalle and Prasanna Wickramasuriya also visited the hospital.
The injured parliamentarian’s men fear that supporters of presidential advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, who was killed in the shooting, would enter the hospital and harm his life.
Therefore, they are guarding the premises, disregarding the hospital security and body checking all persons, while the police just look on, reports said.
