CID breakthrough:

Bharatha Lakshman suspect linked to Bloemendhal shooting

Vidanagamage Amila Sampath, the sixth accused in the Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra murder case, has been arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department in connection with the Bloemendhal shooting incident, Police said yesterday. This ‘most wanted’ suspect had reportedly gone missing near the Hulftsdorp courts complex on August 6.

The Police have also located the second car in which the Bloemendhal attackers came.

Police Spokesman, ASP, Ruwan Gunasekara said the arrest had been made by a special CID team investigating the Bloemendhal shooting incident in which two people, including a woman, were killed and eleven others were injured while engaged in election campaigning for Colombo District UNP candidate, Minister Ravi Karunanayake.

His arrest may be the breakthrough that the CID is seeking in their probe on the Bloemendhal attack. Based on the information given by Amila Sampath (28), a body building instructor by profession, and other information gathered through investigations, the CID is conducting further investigations to arrest the main suspects and the weapons used in the Bloemendhal incident.

The car in which the gunmen had come has been identified as a black coloured hybrid bearing the registration number KX- 3149. CID teams are conducting further investigations into it.
