Following the recovery of large stock of weapons and ammunition from a plot of land in Uva Kuda-Oya in Wellawaya yesterday, the STF arrested the alleged owner of those weapons from a house at Sri Saranankara Mawatha in Dehiwala.

The suspect, Mohamed Abdul Wahib, was arrested along with another stock of ammunitions and weapons at his house.

During the search operation, the STF and the Kohuwala Police recovered 22 rounds of ammunition of 12 bore gun, 90 shells of 12 bore gun, three rounds of T56 ammunition, several parts of a foreign made pistol, two air rifles, two cans of metal ball bearings, two tool kits used for shot gun cleaning and several unidentified rounds of ammunitions from the suspect’s house.

    OMG! First it's said that swords were collected to cut shrubs surrounding the mosques. Now ammunition and weapons collected as a hobby.! They should be given an award for fabricating such lies. Whom are they trying to Impress/deceive ?

    If I am a Muslim in SL I would also have a weapon for self defence as the security forces don’t seem to be protecting all citizens alike
