The Police Special Task Force (STF) arrested 34-year-old L. J. H. Wimalaweera alias ‘Konda Janith’ over the shooting incident at an eatery in Soysapura, Moratuwa, Police said.  

They said he was also the main suspect of the assassination of SLPP Dehiwala - Mount Lavinia Municipal Councillor K. Ranjan de Silva.

   
The police launched investigations after a group of gunmen, who arrived in a car opened fire at an eatery in Soysapura last Thursday night while three police officers were on duty.   
The eatery also came under an attack by an unidentified group wielding swords on May 19.   


It was revealed that the owner of the eatery had received death threats from an individual in Dubai demanding protection money.  Preliminary investigations revealed that the arrested suspect was a close supporter of absconding underworld criminal ‘Kudu Anju’ who was alleged to have linked to the murder of Ranjan De Silva.   


He was later handed over to the Mount Lavinia Police.   Investigations revealed that the suspect was on bail over the shooting of Ranjan de Silva, the father of Sri Lanka first eleven cricketer Dhananjaya de Silva.
