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.

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