The  Judge imposed this sentence on Dadallage  Ajith Pathmakumara  alias Chuka, Dadallage Lalith alias Chuta, and Dadallage Ananda alias Kukka .
 

The Prosecution stated that the suspects had killed the victim while the victim was traveling in a motor bike subsequent to appearing at the Peliyagoda Police station to sign his appearance at the Police station consequent to a court order.
