Three accomplices of underworld figure ‘Angoda Lokka’ have been arrested yesterday in connection with a double murder, where a businessman and his driver were shot dead in Hanwella, Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said.   


A soil businessman, 43-year-old W. Vijith Premalal alias Sumedha and 32-year-old M.G. Ravindum were shot dead by two unidentified gunmen at Pahathgama in Hanwella on August 25.   
SP Gunasekera said the Hanwella Police and the Western Province (South) crimes officers had launched an investigation into the shooting. They had analyzed CCTV footage and telephone records to apprehend the suspects.
