Minuwangoda Magistrate D.A. Ruwanpathirana said the DNA samples obtained from Saman Jayalath, the brother of Dunesh Priyashantha alias ‘Kondaya’, has matched the DNA obtained from the two strands of hair recovered from the body of Seya Sadewmi.
This was revealed after the Genetech Institute in Borella had handed over its confidential report to the CID which in turn submitted it to the Magistrate.
Earlier DNA samples were obtained from ‘Kondaya’ and a 17-year-old student and 33-year-old father of one. The student and the father were released later because the DNA samples obtained from them had not matched with that of recovered from the body of Seya. (Tony Karunanayake)
