kaluthara shooting


Western Province crimes, road safety and traffic in charge, Senior DIG Nandana Munasinghe, who is leading the investigations into the shooting incident in Kalutara yesterday said according to initial investigations a prominent underworld leader ‘Angoda Loku’ and several leading underworld figures were behind yesterday’s shooting. “We are suspecting that Angoda Loku and several others were behind the shooting and their target was ‘Samayan’. This may be a result of a long-lasted revenge between the two factions and the two factions clashed eachother in few occasions earlier. So far evidence found confirming the suspects had waited till the Prison bus arrived more than two hours,” he said.
