A sea cucumber dealer was shot dead when two unidentified men on a motorcycle that was without a number plate fired at them today in the Nahavilluwa area of Puttalam, the police said.

Police Headquarters said the victim who was returning home from the mosque after prayers succumbed to his injuries before admission to the Puttalam Hospital. The victim was identified as Mohammed Nassar (32), a resident of Nahavilluwa, Puttalam. The reason behind the incident was believed to be a long standing animosity over a previous dispute.  Pix by Hiran Priyankara Jayasinghe

    Look like under present government, "two unidentified gunmen on motorcycle" culture has started again in Sri Lanka. May be President and Deffence Secretary are unaware of the incidents. However, affairs getting bad to worse.

    If disputes sort it amicably rather than resorting to violence and intimidation. They wont resolve issues but make it bad blood and continous issues.

    The word 'Unidentified' should be used as a punctuation mark. Where has there ever been 'Unidentified' turn into IDENTIFIED? It's like the Wild West...

    Even if a person is killed due to a personal reason or even if a person commits suicide, some people tries to put the blame on to the government and the buddhism. What a joke!

    Y# Jo Lewis: You sir, are a fool & an idiot, to make such in insensitive comment. If you had cared to read the whole article it has nothing to do with religion. It said " The reason behind the incident was believed to be a long standing animosity over a previous dispute"
