Ravindu Vaas Gunawardena -- the son of former DIG Vaas Gunawardena -- was today taken into custody by the CID from a safe house in Pepilyana. He is being held under detention orders for 72 hours.

He was arrested in connection with the killing of businessman Shyam Huzamdeen.

During investigations based on statements provided by the suspects, it was revealed that when Shyam was brought to the former DIG’s residence in Nedimala, Ravindu and another policeman had got into a double cab with weapons and followed the van in which the victim was being transported.

On a previous occasion a separate warrant was issued for his arrest by the Kaduwela Magistrate in connection with the abduction and assault of Malabe SLIIT student Nipuna Ramanayake.

The Colombo Chief Magistrate had also issued an order banning Ravindu from leaving the country.

Following the arrest of former DIG Vaas Gunawardene the CID visited his Nedimala residence on two occasions and had also visited the home of Ravindu’s girlfriend.

In the raid carried out by the detectives they were also able to arrest another person who had an arrest warrant issued by a district court.
The suspect is being questioned by detectives led by CID ASP Shani Abeysekara.

    Cobra Wednesday, 07 August 2013 06:48 AM

    I wonder where or who all these bones lead lead to. There must be a monster lurking in some dreadful cave ahead!!!

    Porky Pig Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:30 AM

    No there are the bears in the open. They too need to be brought to justice.

    sss Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:32 AM

    He asked arresting cops - what took you so long?

    Ramzeel Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:33 AM

    Arrest all those who were helping them to evade arrest.

    Sara Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:44 AM

    Only those who went through these murderers will know what they have gone through.
    May retribution come upon them as they deserve for what they have done.

    Chamath Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:49 AM

    At least SOME justice is happening in this country.

    Indi Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:49 AM

    Hope the same won't happen as it was with Dumindha Silva.

    Game Man Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:50 AM

    You abused the law now you are paying the price..

    Mutu Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:52 AM

    As Long as political patronage is there criminals can escape and be in hiding.

    Vidura Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:53 AM

    Agreed. Which family?

    sobers Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:53 AM

    Power.Politics,Professions,Personalities using corrupt means are destroying the life's of innocents. Maximum, punishment should be given to these characters, who are big bullies.

    Ranjitdea Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:54 AM

    Why waited so long to arrest for the 2009 crime. This is what happens when you fall out from the ruling family

    hemanthak Wednesday, 07 August 2013 09:45 AM

    Why only rahinda rajapakshe ? What about Dutugemunu Silva

    Mal Wednesday, 07 August 2013 03:55 AM

    No Renu that era is no more. Only one in say 10,000 culprits get punished. Others go scot free without any problem.

    Kolomba Kakka Wednesday, 07 August 2013 02:00 PM

    Is this retribution? Either good or bad in life "you reap what you sow". See the destiny of a DIG's young son today. Pathetic situation. Apparently he seems to have chosen his father's footsteps!

    PRASANNAJIT Wednesday, 07 August 2013 04:04 AM

    Don't jump the gun. We never know what will happen in the future. Have to wait till the final verdict is given through justice.

    Bu tha Wednesday, 07 August 2013 02:19 PM

    until this father and son do this much of crimes, where the hell those investigators were??

    Sim Wednesday, 07 August 2013 07:34 AM

    In pick and choose cases

    Critic Roshan Wednesday, 07 August 2013 07:41 AM

    Take him directly to the gallows, and take stern action against those who harbored the Criminal. I salute the CID personnel for their brave action.

    Amir Wednesday, 07 August 2013 04:52 AM

    For how long?

    Ralph Anthony Kern Wednesday, 07 August 2013 11:12 AM

    Well done CID. Your next catch should be the wife

    leel Wednesday, 07 August 2013 11:14 AM

    I am very pity about this lad what will be his future. He so misled by his own parents I think at very young age may be the cause. If it happens to one of my sons then definitely i will be devastated.
    This episode clearly show that Father encourage son to participate his dirty works form very childhood. That is why son doesn't think twice. Previous episode of the son and mother in SLIT encounter and the mother's behavior also clearly show mother also encourage the son for these work. Very sad.

    Ifham Wednesday, 07 August 2013 08:50 AM

    Better late than never. Well done to arrest this fellow. He should be sentenced to life imprisonment.
