The Mount Lavinia police have recorded statements from several close associates of Sinhara Amal Silva alias ‘Kudu Anju’ in connection with the killing of SLPP Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia Municipal Councillor K. Ranjan de Silva.

A high ranking police officer told Daily Mirror the detectives are conducting inquiries on new leads.

He said Sinhara Amal Silva alias ‘Kudu Anju’ is currently living in Dubai and operating his heroin business from there with the support of his close associates.

The police are yet to ascertain the motive behind the councillor’s killing.

Police said they believed that the councillor's eldest son Savithra de Silva was the target of the assailants.

Meanwhile, Mount Lavinia Police had obtained the CCTV footage and mobile call records and are in the process of locating the vehicle used in committing the crime.

No arrests have been made so far. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Mt Lavinia police is investigating, what a funny statement... they are the people who make a living with the Kudu Rajas in Kaldemulla.

    All the criminal kingpins are living in Dubai and the Authorities are aware of this but no action taken to arrest them and bring them back to be prosecuted against the crimes they have committed. This is when we think the leaders now are impotent and make us wish for a strongly manly lion like Gota is at the helm.

    Those who live by the sword die by the sword. Although this was stated long time ago it's still applicable.
