    The businessman reported the theft to the police yesterday (10) night.

    The 40-year-old businessman, who is a resident of Matale, told the police that a few days ago, he visited a bank in Matale and withdrew 170 lakh rupees. It has also been mentioned that he got the money with the expectation of buying a vehicle.

The businessman also told the police that a group of people attacked him after an incident.
