The CID will intensify its investigations into the killing of presidential adviser Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, whose funeral was held today, in Kolonnawa under tight security arrangements
.
The Mulleriyawa gun battle on Saturday evening ended in the death of Mr. Premachandra and three others while parliamentarian Duminda Silva sustained severe head injuries.

So far six suspects have been arrested and 16 guns taken into custody. The guns included 12 pistols, two revolvers and two T-56 assault rifles.

The CID had also recorded nearly 50 statements with regard to Saturday’s Mulleriyawa gun battle.

Sources said most of the suspects arrested so far were loyalists of Duminda Silva, who is still under treatment at the Sri Jayawardenapura
Hospital. (Supun Dias)
