Two unidentified gunmen are reported to have fired at the residence of State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe’s secretary early this morning.

Police said no one was injured but some window panes and the outer wall of the house at Jothipala Mawatha in Malabe, Athurugiriya, was damaged in the shooting.

Police said they suspect the two gunmen who had arrived on a motorcycle to have used a T-56 weapon. (Buddhika Kumarasiri)

    On daily basis we are reading these shootings by 2 people come in motor bike and disappear. Still no one caught till now. Is it done by the deserted armies with political influence? So far our great police has no clue who are these people...
