Next victim of Madhush revealed Featured

The Special Investigation Unit at Peliyagoda has uncovered a plan by Makandure Madhush, who operates from Dubai, to kill his rival underworld leader Chaminda Jayanath alias Dematagoda Chaminda when he arrives in courts.

Chaminda, the third suspects in the ex-MP Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra murder, has been sentenced to death by the high court.

The plot came to light upon observation of the behaviour of the relatives of one Ragama Charitha, who was nabbed traveling in a van with firearms near Indra Traders in Negombo on August 12.

He is said to be the closest supporter of Kudu Lalitha, and was arrested with heroin in 2013.

The SIU was tipped off that a couple had given a parcel to Charitha’s home, and they arrested the suspects.

Upon inspection of the parcel, it was found that it contained the uniform of a police inspector.

Also, a T-56 rifle was found from their vehicle.

Under interrogation, they confessed that Madhush was planning to kill Chaminda.
