No internal inquiry was being carried out regarding the Kotahena shooting, in which gunmen fired at hundreds of people led by Minister Ravi Karunanayake during an election campaign, UNP candidate Ajith P. Perera said yesterday.

When asked by a journalist, he said the UNP had not such power to carry out an internal inquiry though their supporters were killed and injured during the shooting.

“As a political party, we are not authorised to hold such inquiries. Therefore, we have entrusted the Police to investigate,” he said.

He said it was unnecessary for the UNP to get work from any underworld gangsters for the forthcoming general elections since the UNP was obtaining an obvious victory with at least 120 Parliamentary seats. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    No inquiry because the UNP knows it it their goons responsible for the murders.
