During questioning, it was revealed that an underworld gangster known ‘Sasanka’ who is also an accomplice of Angoda Lokka had used ‘Chaminda’s mobile phone to contact an individual who is working at an earth supply business in Pamankada, which belongs to former Chairman of the Kotikawatta-Mulleriyawa Pradeshiya Sabha Prasanna Solangaarachchi to collect extortion money.
