Maduranga Fernando alias ‘Peramulle Sameera’ is also believed to be the main suspect in the shooting and killing of two individuals at Hekitta, Wattala on January 31, 2019.

Police also seized 106 grams of heroin found in his possession and a luxury van.

All four of them are suspected of being connected to the shooting in Hekitta and the drug racket.

They are expected to be produced at the Wattala Magistrate’s Court today (28) while the Organised Crime Prevention Division is conducting further investigations.
