H.H.A.M. Senevirathne , a supporter of UNP candidate Priyantha Ashoka, was carrying out propaganda activities for an election meeting at Anamaduwa Road when the incident occurred.

This is the most serious physical attack on a UNP supporter in this election and Senevirathne said that those who attacked him said 'there is no place for UNP in Arachchikattu.'
He was later transferred to Colombo National Hospital due to his injuries.
CaFFE National Organizer, Ahmed Manas said that there are 43 illegal election offices of Puttalam District candidate Sanath Nishantha and illegal temporary offices have been a major source of conflict in Northwestern and Central Provinces.
