A husband and wife in their twenties were seriously injured after they were hacked by unidentified men last night in Dimbulwala, Kahawatte, police said.

Police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said that the couple was sleeping at the time of the incident with their five-year-old son. The wife had seen a shadow and when she screamed her husband had attempted to catch the suspect.

The suspect had then slashed the 28-year-old Amarasiri and his 27-year-old wife Dilhani with a sword. He then fled.

Residents rushed to the house when they heard the screaming who had sustained serious injuries to their arms and legs.

The couple was rushed to the Ratnapura General Hospital by the residents and according to hospital authorities they were in a critical condition.
Their house is situated two kilometers away from the house where a woman was killed on October 31.

A large number of people gathered at the scene of crime and the police had to cordon off the area around the house.
Previously fifteen murders, all women took place in the last four years in Opatha, Warapitiya, Kotakethana and Dimbulwala.(Supun Dias)

    these incidents happening for more than a year but responsible persons keep silence this indicates their support?

    Kahawatta is popular for GEMS but these killings overtaking it...

    Anderezja Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:27 PM

    Once the authorities have finished looking after their bribes and power positions, they just might (unlikely) look into this. Might have to bribe them for that too

    divan Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:40 PM

    every thing is under control..the i.g.p deployed special team for investigation.(oh..people of the "wonder of the asia"plz belive).

    Once again sad for Sri Lanka
    If no law and order in the Country
    what could you expect ???? no forces can do what is right as they have to follow instructions from the Culprit masters

    Nimal Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:57 PM

    The police officer who was conducting the investigation was transferred prior to the completion.

    Anura Sunday, 11 November 2012 03:59 AM

    Kahawatta and homicide have some entangled correlation.

    shaq Sunday, 11 November 2012 04:30 AM

    What is this??? What is with kahawatte and killings and attacks??? This is a very serious situation there.

    richardson Monday, 12 November 2012 05:42 PM

    Oh! God, what a dim bat
    Get a life or jump in the lake.

    richardson Monday, 12 November 2012 05:43 PM

    Why not shift all kahawatta people to Police Head Quarters and send 10 000 cops there.

    manju Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:19 AM

    What happening in Kahawatte ??? Now old ladies to young couple ??????'.......

    shihan Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:26 AM

    What is the meaning of this? Where is human safety? people getting hacked to death and the police authorities do nothing about it. Please look after your citizens and that is priority. not just finding out who the criminals are and giving them bail and release.

    Lobo Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:26 AM

    Whats up with Kahawatte? How many more deaths before the authorities gear themselves to put a stop to this?

    MAN - ZCC Monday, 12 November 2012 07:40 AM

    WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THIS KILLING AND MUDER IS GOING TO END. IT IS UNPARDONABLE

    Anura Oman Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:38 AM

    Whatever people say,at the end the sharia law is the best in the world..which was said very long time back....dont like the idea but that's fact....things like this doesn't happen around here it's peace...

    Kahawatta become small Afganisthan and Iraq

    Allow all Kahawatta civilians to keep a registered gun in their
    home for protection.

    manpei Monday, 12 November 2012 01:05 AM

    It makes me sick to say. The entire naibourhood will gather to oggle but no one will do anything to really help. Saw the vedio of the poor man who's arm and leg was slashed in Galle, so many on lookers and vediographers why didn't anyone try to bing hi wounds and stop the bleeding, he could have survived with some first aid.

    Jayasiri Monday, 12 November 2012 08:37 AM

    Definitely, night time vigilance teams should be trained and asked to protect each other as police cannot go every road on Kahawatta. Also, issue Special identities to Khawatta residents so that any stranger roaming in Kahwatta can be caught. It can be a lunatic politician who is doing this to terrorizes the area and spread the trend to other areas. This must be stop before getting out of hands of the authorities.

    Bushel Monday, 12 November 2012 01:09 AM

    Now kahwaththe. This can spread all overt the island. Authorities should work out a plan to eradicate. It is possible. Don't want any excuses.

    bimbo Monday, 12 November 2012 01:30 AM

    where the hell are the HELLA URUMAY suckers. They make a big noise over dogs @ cows but are silent over human killings. Disgracefull basterds who sell Govt. property (Permits) and live on innocent peoples food (Dana).

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 11 November 2012 09:06 AM

    Kahawatte has bocome a WAR ZONE. We thought after a Police station irrected, this will come to an end.

    Huna Sunday, 11 November 2012 09:33 AM

    unfortunately for us ,for our government these are just Miner issues

    Nihal Amarasekera Monday, 12 November 2012 02:19 AM

    Pathetic. Law enforcement failing. Why not deploy the elite forces & kill the miscreant bastards like the prison raid.

    shihan Sunday, 11 November 2012 10:02 AM

    True story.. Kill someone and you get killed, steal something lose your hands, rape someone get it chopped. Agreed.

    Tamil god Monday, 12 November 2012 02:43 AM

    This country is forsaken after killing our people

    OMG Sunday, 11 November 2012 10:55 AM

    Call int he Kattadiyas to Kahawatta.

    Something is seriously wrong there!

    Cobra Sunday, 11 November 2012 12:07 PM

    There definitely is a serial killer at large and he is daring our authorities. If the local police cannot handle it why are they not trying to get outside help? This really is getting out of hand!

    richardson Monday, 12 November 2012 04:07 AM

    Police is busy arresting sex workers who do no harm to any body.

    sltk2004 Monday, 12 November 2012 10:17 AM

    To apply sharia or any law, first you need to catch the culprit.

    richardson Monday, 12 November 2012 04:10 AM

    Sorry Nihal, Police have more important work like arresting sex workers,

    RamUK Sunday, 11 November 2012 12:30 PM

    country become full of sick ppl......

    Rahmathullah M. H. Sunday, 11 November 2012 12:42 PM

    I think there is no Police Station in Kahawatte or it seems even police do not want to risk their lives. It is too bad to know that law and order situation in the country is at its worst under the present leadership.

    pr Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:18 PM

    there's a psychopathic serial killer, I believe..conventional crime methods would not catch the killer..should use proactive and futuristic methods(s). authorities should act within...

    perumal Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:26 PM

    No, miracle! or wonder!!

    MMi Sunday, 11 November 2012 01:48 PM

    there's some serious serial killers in kahawaththa..is it some cult or something

    Nodrog Monday, 12 November 2012 05:01 AM

    Blame it on the grease yakkas.

    Saliya Wickremasuriy Sunday, 11 November 2012 02:24 PM

    What the f.........the Police and Army doing there?

    rumi Sunday, 11 November 2012 02:36 PM

    where is MERYN SILVA? He is available only to stop animal killings .

    ajith Sunday, 11 November 2012 03:03 PM

    Even though the war is over the crimes are all over the island.
    It is a shame why POLICE cannot make a full stop!!!!!

    Anura Sunday, 11 November 2012 03:50 PM

    Even after 15 deaths, police are yet to put a full stop. What the hell is happening?

    Jesus Monday, 12 November 2012 01:02 PM

    When the so called police find the culprit torture him and kill him,people of this nature should be wiped out from the human race.
