Hit-man about to murder, caught

By Bandara Maddumage – Kegalle


A hit-man who was on his way to murder a witness in a case of homicide, was taken into custody by the Rajagiriya STF Intelligence Unit at Mawanella, Utuwankanda.

In a subsequent search of his house, a hand grenade, three shot gun bullets and tools to make guns were found. After being arrested on 12 February, the suspect was handed over to the Mawanella Police who had produced him at the Mawanella Magistrate's Court. The Judge had ordered that he be remanded till 28 February.

It was later revealed that the suspect had planned to kill a private security guard who was a witness to a murder in 2001, and which case is being heard in the Kegalle High Court. He had been a close associate of the alleged notorious gangster, Beddegane Sanjeewa.

The Mawanella Police are conducting investigations under the direction of STF Commandant, DIG Ranawana.
