In a dramatic shooting incident at the Kaduwela Magistrate Court this morning, a remand prisoner, who was to be produced in court, sustained serious injuries to his chest, the Police said.

The prisoner, in remand over three murder cases, was shot by an unidentified assailant on a staircase as he was being escorted by Prisons officials to the court house.

He was immediately admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the National Hospital.

The Police said that investigations had revealed that the gunman had entered the courts complex with a revolver hidden in a bandaged hand. An empty cartridge had been recovered from the scene of crime, the Police said.

However, the gunman had managed to jump over the parapet wall and fled the scene, according to Police.

The injured, Pathiranalage Aruna Damith Udayanga (28) is a resident of Danowatta in Ranala.

Police said six cases, including three murders, were pending against the suspect. (Irangi Edirisinghe, Buddhika Kumarasiri and Ilangakoon Menike)

    shhh these things are irrelevant. a government is there to go and sell the country in front of UN. Other things are less priority like gang violence.

    Worse things happened during the last 10 year rule. Were you all hibernating!Good governance cannot change things overnight or even in 1 or 2 years due to the rot created.
