Police have commenced an investigation to identify the perpetrator who had robbed a precious award from the residence of the late legendary cinematographer Dr. Lester James Peiris, yesterday (May 02).
 
The missing award has been identified as the Ranamayura award, awarded to Dr. Peiris at the New Delhi Film festival in 1965 for his film Gampereliya.
