Police arrested a group of gangsters including a woman on charges of attempting to extort Rs.2.5 million from the Kataragama Kirivehera Rajamaha Vihara Chief Incumbent the Ven. Kobawaka Dhamminna Thera.

The Tangalle Division Crime Investigation Unit had on Monday also seized the vehicle used by the gangsters to arrive at the temple.

The Thera refused to give them any money but informed the Tangalle Police, which lost no time in ambushing the gangsters at Tissamaharama.

One of the three suspects was a woman from Keselwatta in Panadura and others were from Pannipitiya and Aturugiriya. They were handed over to Tissamaharama police for further action.(Ariyadasa Kodituwkku and M.K. Nandasena)

    Also how about a hotline to report politicians who harass citizens?

    I know this monk... There might be some problem with the women and they might have tried to blackmail him.

    Good arrest all the gangsters and thugs running amok...What are you going to do to the gangsters who have gotten into the Colombo and other Municipal Council? Hope this Government wont give nominations to them at the Provincial Council Elections...

    Colombo has a lot of thugs in politics that need to go. What is our government going to do about this?

    A Buddhist Priest- from where did he get all that money? I thought the Buddhist priests disown all worldly goods, at least that was what I was told and taught at Ananda.

    Do not expect clean politics. You can judge from the back door entrants to the Parliament, some of whom have been Ministers as well !!
