Dharmasiri Perera, the main suspect in the murder of Ranjan de Silva, the father of Sri Lankan cricketer Dananjaya de Silva, has been arrested in Abu Dhabi, police said.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said that the suspect was arrested on November 29.

On May 24, 2018, Ranjan de Silva who was a member of the Dehiwala Mount Lavinia Municipal Council was shot dead.

The Spokesman said three suspects have been arrested earlier in connection with the murder. " However, the main suspect fled the country to the United Arab Emirates.

    No, they don't want to, since they are in the palace and Shani in IDH. It's simple logic as such.

    Interpol made a positive response to this small fry. What has the Interpol done with the Red Notice issued for the arrest of Arjuna Mahendran. Clear double standards

    Bring him home and stage an encounter before he could speak, he is probably a drug dealer too.

    At the same time, murder suspect of Lasantha Wickramatunga is freely out there without any consequences. Does it means the suspect is protect for political purpose? We need justice to Lasantha's murder case.
