CID questions close associates of man who attacked Kiwi shoppers

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has questioned close associates of Ahamed Adhil Mohamed Samsudeen, the man who carried out the attack at a shopping mall in New Zealand.

The Police media unit said that investigations revealed that the attacker had left Sri Lanka as a student in 2011.

The Police said that his close associates are now being questioned in order to gather more information about him.

Ahamed Adhil Mohamed Samsudeen is a resident of Kattankudy, a town in Batticaloa in the East.

The lone attacker grabbed a knife at the mall in Auckland and attacked shoppers yesterday (Friday) injuring seven, including three critically.

New Zealand Police, who were undercover at the mall, shot and killed the man after he stabbed seven people.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had said the Sri Lankan national was under Police surveillance and was a supporter of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. The West deliberately encourages radicals to multiply in the name of religious freedom, in order to keep developing countries in chaos and also to use those radicals to fight proxy wars. This particular strategy has become a boomerang to the West. This has been coming back and haunting the West. China and Russia should re-educate the radicals about the West’s invasions and genocides since the 16th century, including war crimes in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan. Let the West pay for its greatest sin (creating terrorism) ;—)))

    • Where to begin with this? The people in the supermarket are not architects of proxy wars. It suits those architects well enough if the domestic populations are terrorised, all the more easy to dampen any opposition to the next war. You seem not to understand how this is played.

    • You allow others to determine your path and way of thinking. You are a very small minded person then.
      Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
