Two suspects have been arrested by police in connection to a murder which had occurred nearly sixteen years ago in the Hatha-munagala Colony area in Mahawela.
It is said that the suspects were identified following an investigation conducted upon information received by the Mahawela Police.
According to police the suspects, who are brother and sister, had allegedly murdered their 74-year-old father by clubbing him and had then attempted to conceal the crime by dumping the body in the Aban Ganga.
It is suspected that the siblings had committed the murder due to the father assaulting their mother under the influence of alcohol.
The suspects were produced at the Matale Magistrate’s Court today.
