Bambalapitiya police have arrested a young millionaire businessman on a charge of having sexually abused a 21 year old German girl.
The girl had been highly inebriated with liquor, while the young man had been under the influence of narcotic tablets at the time.

She has told her friends about the incident, and they had gone to the German embassy, on whose instructions, they had lodged a complaint with the police.
The suspect is under interrogation.
