The CID informed the Pelmadulla Magistrate today that the results of the DNA tests had proved that the 35-year-old man arrested on Friday was involved in the killings of six of the seven women at Kotakethana and Kahawatta.

The Genetec Institute, which carried out DNA tests on the man, said his DNA samples matched with the DNA samples of the objects recovered from the location and the bodies of the six women.
