Notorious underworld figure Makandure Madush was killed to prevent the names of politicians involved in the drug trafficking being disclosed in Court, National People's Power (NPP) MP Vijitha Herath said today.

He told Parliament that if the case against Madush was taken up in Court, there was a good chance of his revealing the names of politicians involved in drug trafficking and his killing was to prevent him from doing so.

“This is not the first killing of this nature. There have been several other similar killings. The issue is not Madush's killing but the manner he was killed. Joining a programme on a private radio channel over the phone on January 28 he said there were several politicians involved in drug trafficking,” the MP said.

He said a senior police officer had also said that Madush had revealed when being interrogated that some 80 politicians were involved in drug trafficking and added that these types of killings should be stopped.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Certainly all these 80 politicians were saved after killing this criminal and Madush would have revealed the top politician.s name in details

    Very Socking 80 means, 1/3rd of our politicians are drug traffickers. Wonder of Asia !!

    when they talk about politicians they also refer to pradeshiya sabha level. There are far more than 80!

    Good for you

    FF Tuesday, 20 October 2020 10:48 PM

    YES. CERTAINLY MADUSH WAS MURDERED. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST CASE WHERE A PERSON UNDER HEAVY GUARD IS SHOT DEAD BY THE POLICE. THE POLICE SEEMS TO BE HAVING A SCRIPT FOR THIS SORT OF SITUATIONS

    SODHA Tuesday, 20 October 2020 11:10 PM

    Spot on. It's just obvious

    GHarry Tuesday, 20 October 2020 11:47 PM

    Public knew the politicos; It is non other than Ranil Wickremasinghe and his stalwarts such as Ravi karunanayagam, Rajitha Senarathna etc.

    Madush had revealed when being interrogated that some 80 politicians etc., well , let us see how the court handles this saga but do not be surprised if they take 1-5 years to reveal, and at that time they may misplace evidence or some important person would have passed away

    Those who received suite cases from Madush must have done this.

    Your version is believable than the official statement of "Wild west style shooting" in Maligawatte between Cops and Under-World gang. Oh sorry, more to the story, Makandura was the only one got killed in the shoot out. Well, couldn't find a new version and repeating the same old CRAP!

    Ronnie Bugger Wednesday, 21 October 2020 10:41 AM

    If you are so confident of the information, why not become a hero and reveal names yourself. Also, this killing appear to be stage managed. The angle of the bullet entering the head hints that Madush was shot in the head by a sniper

    Killed one drug trafficker and saved 80 politicians. Donald Trump would say that's a good thing. A beeeaautiful, good, uuuuge good thing.

    eresh S kumara Wednesday, 21 October 2020 12:01 PM

    Killing one of the drug kingpins in sri lanka could save 80 politicians i guess .. Thanks JVP for reveling and reminding it at the parliament

    Shiran fernando Wednesday, 21 October 2020 07:39 PM

    U guys and all polititians shouting should declare madush a international hero and do statues in every junction and declate a national rememberance day and a holiday also.

    Samarakoon Wednesday, 21 October 2020 08:50 PM

    Why didn't they get the help of Police Commandos for the raid such as other similar situation. Shooters tip-off before hand and the police make it happened without harm to them,then escaped.Funny.

    Buddhist Thursday, 22 October 2020 12:29 AM

    All Law abiding citizens of the country should petition UNHRC re; this killing.

    Ajja Thursday, 22 October 2020 12:49 PM

    So Police officer if you are a man with spine reveal those 80 names....
