MP’s brother among suspects nabbed for robbery

The brother of a Galle district parliamentarian and three others were arrested by the  Habaraduwa police for their alleged involvement in a series of robberies in the south.

A soldier and two army deserters were the others in the gang.  Police said the gang was responsible for robberies in the Ambalangoda, Ahangama, Akmeemana, Weligama, Poddala , Habaraduwa and Galle areas. During investigations police recovered 21 gold chains allegedly robbed by them.

A senior police official said the modus operandi of the gang was to paste a sticker with forged registration number on the number plate of the motorcycle used for a robbery and to remove it immediately after fleeing the scene. (D.G Sugathapala)
