Sri Lanka player Jehan Mubarak was taken in custody by police and later released on bail after the car he was driving was involved in a fatal accident that killed one person and injured another at Maikkulan on the Chilaw-Colombo main road on Sunday.

Mubarak was driving back to Colombo at around 1.00 pm when his car hit two youths who were heading to Chilaw on a motorbike.

The victim, identified as a 31-year-old resident of Dumbaladeniya, was admitted to the Chilaw Base Hospital and transferred to the National Hospital in Colombo where he succumbed to his injuries. The injured person was receiving treatment at the Chilaw hospital, police said.

Mubarak, who was produced before the Chilaw district judge on Monday, was released on personal bail of two sureties of Sri Lankan rupees two million each after being remanded immediately after the accident.

The court also ordered Mubarak to pay SLR 600,000 to the family members of the deceased and SLR 400,000 to the injured person. Of this amount SLR 200,000 and SLR 100,000 have already been paid to the victims' families, it was revealed in court.

The case will be taken up again on May 3.

Mubarak, a 31-year-old left-hand batsman from Royal College, Colombo, has represented Sri Lanka between 2002 and 2009, appearing in 10 Tests, 38 ODIs and 16 T20Is.
