No breakthrough on Kelaniya shooting

The police are yet to make any arrests over the assassination of the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha UPFA member Hasitha Madawala.

Madawala was shot dead by gunmen on a motorcycle last night while he was outside his house.

The victim was a close associate of the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Prassana Ranaweera.

Ranaweera has been campaigning against Minister Mervyn Silva and Madawala had received death threats from the time he supported Ranaweera’s campaign.
