Former DIG Vaas Gunawardena’s son Ravindu Gunwardena has been arrested by the CID in connection with the murder of a businessman.

The Colombo Magistrate’s Court earlier ordered the Immigration Controller to prevent Ravindu Gunawardene from leaving the country. 

The order was issued by Colombo Additional Magistrate M.A. Sahabdeen after considering a request made by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

ASP Shani Abeysekara of the CID informed court that investigations are underway to arrest Ravindu, who along with his father are suspects in the murder of businessman Mohamed Siyam, and that the Kaduwala Magistrate has also issued a warrant for his arrest. 

Therefore the CID requested a court order preventing him from leaving the country.

Seven suspects including former DIG Vaas Gunawardene area were earlier kept in remand custody over the abduction and murder of the Bambalapitiya-based businessman.
