Preliminary police investigations had revealed the yesterday's shooting might be related to a longstanding clash between two underworld factions in the area.
Unconfirmed reports allege that supporters of ‘Dematagoda Chaminda’ had carried out the attack on supporters of the ‘Bloemendhal Sanka.’ Several supporters of Bloemendhal Sanka were reportedly injured in the shooting.
Bloemendhal Sanka was abroad for several years because of the threat from ‘Dematagoda Chaminda’ and had returned to the island recently.

Politicians should make sure that they hold rallies in safe areas as these gangsters can be easily hired to kill them

They fled when Gota was clearing the underworld. Some UNP bigwigs brought them back for their work and we will be able to see some good scenes like these..

Here it goes!!! those who pointed finger at MR must make an apology to him. Remember guys I am not a supporter of MR. But those who are looking forward to enter the legislative council must demonstrate ethical standards.
