Sad day for Olympism – NOC SL General Secretary waylaid

The General Secretary of the National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOC SL) Maxwell de Silva became a victim of an unprovoked physical attack by two unidentified assailants at his residence in the wee hours Friday and then made their getaway by hi-jacking the house owners’ private car.

As a result, de Silva sustained four finger injuries which he sustained while trying to ward-off the attackers who were branching knives.

The two attackers had gained access to the de Silva residence when the lady of the house opened the front door of the house as a result of a rumpus made by the two dogs who had heard noises in their front yard.

The assailants then confronted the sleeping Maxwell de Silva and attacked him alleging that they had been the victims injustice.

It is believed that this is a result of the Commonwealth Games selections and a party who is affected by it. It also thought this is an extension of the rivalry between de Silva supporters and the faction that faced defeat at the last contest for the executive committee positions of the NOC SL.
