The 46-year-old rider, a solider attached to the Buttala Army Camp and the 37-year-old civil worker attached to the Wathupitiwala Vijayaba Infantry Regiment, were identified as residents of Kurunegala and Hanwella.

Following the arrest of the suspects, the police searched suspect’s house using an explosive detection sniffer dog. The police recovered a T56 assault rifle, T56 weapon cleaning kit, an Italian made air rifle and other equipment used by the army were recovered from the rider’s house.
