Norwegian girl was at hotel room with cricketer with her consent

A Norwegian girl says it is with her consent that she had been in a room of Hotel Mövenpick with cricketer Dhanushka Gunatilake.

That came to light when Colombo Fort magistrate Lanka Jayaratne yesterday (23) took up a case against a friend of Gunatilake, who is accused of raping another Norwegian girl.

The magistrate ordered that the suspect, Sandeep Jude Selliah, a British passport holder, be remanded until July 26.

Selliah is to be produced for an identification parade.
