Consequently the Magistrate asked Police to accelerate matters and conclude investigations and submit a report in court on June 17. The suspects were further remanded till that date.
The Government Analyst informed the Colombo Additional Magistrate that the weapon recovered from the vehicle of journalist Susil Kindelpitiya was a pistol.
Journalist Susil Kumara Kindelpitiya, Uggalage Ruwan Kumara and Wijeyamuni Dishantha Amarasinghe alias Kalu Malli were arrested by the Mirihana Police Special Investigation Unit on May 20 allegedly on a complaint of abducting a woman and following the recovery of a gun from the vehicle in which the suspects and the complainant traveled.
Mirihana Police making submissions submitted that the report on the finger prints of the suspect were not received by the Finger Print Bureau and objected for granting bail to suspects as the investigations were not over.
