Houses of two top Excise Department officials came under fire early today morning, Police said.

The Commissioner General of Excise and Special Excise Investigation Unit OIC D.G.M.V. Hapuarachchi said that gun fire was directed at his house in the morning by an unidentified group.

He said the gun fire had damaged several window panes, a room, the verandah and one of his vehicles at his house in Pamunugama, Negombo.

Meanwhile, the house of the Special Excise Investigation Unit OIC Rosmond Fernando at Rukmalgama, Pannipitiya also came under gunfire this morning.
He said that several gun fires were heard in the morning.

“I called the Commissioner to inform about the shooting incident. He said that his house was also shot at this morning,” Mr. Fernando said.

This is the second time that Mr. Fernando’s house has come under gun fire.

Mr. Fernando said that his house was attacked by unknown gunmen last month.

No one had been arrested so far over the attack.

“Since I handle special cases, I am unable to point my finger at any one,” he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Nearly 50% of hooch in the island is illicit liquor. Recently an Excise Officer was arrested for the sale of cannabis. So who is going to target Excise Dept. Someone must have been shooting stray dogs in the neighbourhoods. via DM iPad app
