The Gampaha Magistrate granted bail to Dunesh Priyashantha alia ‘Kondaya’ and released him over two previous cases.
The Minuwangoda Magistrate on October 19 released Dinesh Priyashantha alias Kondaya who had been arrested in connection with the murder and rape of the five-year-old child in Kotadeniyawa.
Earlier, the Minuwangoda Magitsrate was apprised that DNA samples found on Seya Sadewmi do not match Kondeya.
This was informed after the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) submitted a report prepared by the Genetech Molecular Diagnostics Research Institute (GMDRI) on the DNA test.
In a report submitted to the Court, later the GMDRI informed the Magistrate that DNA samples found on Seya Sadewmi match Kondeya’s elder brother Saman Jayalath.
However, Kondaya was further remanded since he has more pending cases in Gampaha and Attanagalla Magistrate’s Courts.
