Notorious criminal gang member Eron Ranasinghe alias “SF Lokka” has been shot dead by unidentified gunmen, the Police said.

He had been travelling in a car with another person when they came under a gunfire attack near the railway crossing at Dahaiyagama in Anuradhapura.

A woman who was also traveling in the same car has sustained injuries in the shooting and has been hospitalized.
