The motives behind the murder of the Delft Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman, Daniel Rexian have now been linked to an illegitimate relationship between Rexianís wife and the lead suspect, Kandasamy Kamalendran, the CID revealed.
The Chairman of the Delft Pradeshiya Sabha, Daniel Rexian was shot and killed by an unknown group while his body was found on November 27 in his home in Punkudutivu.
The PS Chairman was a member of the EDPD party.
Police stated that his wife, Rexian Anida had informed police that there was no suspicion behind the death of her husband and that he had probably consumed poison.
However, the post mortem revealed that the PS Chairman had sustained a head injury caused by a firearm and was thus pronounced a murder.
Investigations revealed that the murder was conducted with the wifeís consent while she along with the Opposition Leader of the Northern Provincial Council K. Kamalendran (EPDP) and his assistant London Sasindran were arrested for the murder.
The 9mm pistol used in the murder along with 11 bullets and the motorbike used by Kamalendran and Sasindran as the getaway vehicle were seized by the police.
The CID revealed that the wife of the victim and Kamalendran were engaged in an extra-marital relationship.
