Police say that it has been confirmed the Vice Chairman of Karandeniya Pradeshiya Sabha, Donald Sampath Ranaweera, was murdered over a personal dispute.

A senior police official in charge of the investigations said that the late Vice Chairman’s relatives, as well as the other party, is refraining from disclosing information about the dispute.

It has been revealed at the autopsy that the Vice Chairman has sustained seven bullet wounds to his chest and another wound to his head.
Donald Sampath was shot last Friday night in Korakeena area in Uuragasmanhandiya.

Police Media Spokesperson, SP Ruwan Gunasekara noted that the suspect, who was arrested while receiving treatment in hospital, is a close accomplice of Kosgoda Sujee, an underworld leader.

Investigations have revealed that the Vice Chairman had been shot following a dispute between him and Kosgoda Sujee.

Donald Sampath Ranaweera has operated a real estate development business in the area and it has been reported that he had received the support of Kosgoda Sujee and his accomplices to operate the business.

However, both factions have had a dispute later and it is reported that the father and son who were murdered in Yudapitiya in Karandeniya, recently also had maintained close ties with the late Vice Chairman.
