Two underworld members were killed in a police shoot out in the Badagamuwa forest reserve in Kurunegala early this morning when they had opened fire at the police team in an attempt to escape.

Police Spokesperson S.P. Prashantha Jayakody told Daily Mirror online that these two underworld figures were closely linked to Suraj Dhanushka, a famous underworld leader who was killed in a police shoot out in Colombo seven months ago.

The underworld figures have been identified as Sampath Sendella Dias and Charith Chamara Chaturanga of Bloemendhal in Colombo.

According to the police, the two had been arrested by the Pannala Police yesterday but they had later escaped with a police weapon.

They had been hiding in an abandoned house in the Badagamuwa Forest when a police team from the Wellawa Police carried out a raid to arrest them.


The police added that they were compelled to open fire when the suspects had fired at the police team.

    Is it true?

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 03:55 PM

    This must be the lastest method in getting rid of opposition voters.

    who ever comes to power in this country there should not be any underworld and the black money should not be allowed.

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 04:07 PM

    Or trying to hide traces from the contracts they have done.

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 08:52 AM

    These gangsters would have been opposition supporters surely. The government needs thugs at this stage with the upcoming elections looming closer and closer..........................................................

    Can they come up with a new story. This is the same old story.
    Culprits shoot at Police. Police return fire & kill culprits. No Police personnel are injured. End of story.

    Didn't the guys have any political backing?

    Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:05 AM

    Still there are many in GOSL.

    Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:59 AM

    Encounters, a vicious cycle: Connivance of VIPs, ex-servicemen and officials should be routed out to put an end to this type of killings!

    Wednesday, 10 March 2010 10:18 AM

    the standard protocol... the names to be filled in as usual. The western countries could learn to save lots of work and money by such standardization. One thing I do not understand how do these guys manage always to escape with police weapons?

    Wednesday, 10 March 2010 03:17 AM

    finish all the guys of underworld....

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 01:27 PM

    IF IT IS GENIVEN CASE IS, VERY GOOD ...

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 01:32 PM

    This resembles the killing of innocent Tamils saying that they killed Tigers.

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:08 AM

    MR.I.G.P., GOOD WORKS, SEND ALL UNDERWORLD GUYS TO UNDERWORLD (UNDERGROUND)

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:22 AM

    well done ...these soocalled underworld fellows should be given proper punishment ..........

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:25 AM

    this could be who killed lasantha Wickramatunga
    Govt. Killed them so they will not be able to get evidence from them....

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:27 AM

    Must be a opposition supporter

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:47 AM

    I am tired of hearing the same (escape) story, why don't our police use some new techniques....

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 07:52 AM

    Same old story? Escaping with a police weapon?

    Tuesday, 09 March 2010 08:15 AM

    So, another Police murder. Definitely the Police would cook up a story to say that the victims had tried to use force on the Police. I am sure these two who have been killed would be possessing information against the Police or any VIP in some case or the other. So, to destroy evidence the best way is to finish off them.
