A van suspected to have been used for several crimes including the abduction of journalist Keith Noyahr in 2008 was found from a house at Piliyandala, police spokesman Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Priyantha Jayakody said.

He said the van was found by officers of the Crime Investigation Division (CID) from a house of a woman who was known by the Army Major Bulathwatta.

Police suspects this van may have been used for the murder of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge and several other crimes. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    If these unsolved crimes can be solved, then the world will appreciate and help us. No one is above the law and can't use their positions and privileges to unwanted advantage. If we are going to be a peaceful country the law breakers mostly politicians and their stooges should set the path correct. If not the innocent population will suffer, and will soon become worst than somalia.
