E-mail Print
Tangalle Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Sampath Chandra Pushpa Vidanapathirana was arrested in Kotte, last night by a special CID team in connection with the murder case of the British national Khuram Shaikh, police said.

The Police said that the suspect was in hiding at the time of arrest.

On January 9, the Colombo High Court issued an arrest warrant against Vidanapathirana for not appearing in courts for the trial into the alleged murder of British tourist Khuram Shaikh and alleged rape of the victim’s Russian girl friend at a Tangalle holiday resort in December 2011.

When the matter was taken up for hearing Counsel Shabdika Wellapuli informed court that those who stood surety for the Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman were present in court and they had informed that the accused was admitted to a private  hospital in Galle on Wednesday evening after falling ill.

However, Judge Kumudini Wickramasinghe issued a warrant on the accused and ordered the sureties to produce the medical certificate in court on January 22.

its seems the commenters here are more knowledgable than the people who do judgements. Because they all see almost same conclusion before the case.
