The post-mortem of Councillor Ranjan de Silva, the father of national cricketer Danajaya de Silva, has revealed that there were three stab wounds in his chest area.
 
Following this police said that Ranjan de Silva was, in fact, the target of the assailants and not his son.
 
Ranjan de Silva was shot dead on Thursday (May 24) outside his house while he was talking to two others, by unidentified gunmen.
 
The elder brother of Dananjaya de Silva, Sachithra de Silva has stated that he suspects that their father was murdered over a dispute he had with an accomplice of Amal Sinhara alias Kudu Anju.
 
Police stated that CCTV footage recovered from the area had revealed many facts, and accordingly investigations are being carried out to find the assailants - however, they added that no arrests have been made so far.
 
The funeral of Ranjan de Silva will be held at the Mount Lavinia public cemetery at 4 pm tomorrow.
 
A number of politicians had arrived at the family residence to pay their final respects to the Municipal Councillor.
