The abduction of 39-year old Thusitha Kumarasiri was reported to police on the 21st of July.
Police Special Task Force has issued a delisting order on Kumarasiri as he had vacated his post when he was abducted.
Although Kumarasiri’s mistress Himali Karunarathna and her driver Sampath Kavinda told in their statement that ex IP Kumarasiri fled on his own accord, Kumarasiri’s brother complained to police that Himali Karunarathna and her driver’s statement was suspicious.
Later police investigations found that Kumarasiri was murdered for his constant harassments on his mistress demanding 1.5 million rupees.
Kumarasiri’s body was found at Ganepalle in Kithulgala one week after his death, and his remains were buried at state expense 10 days ago as nobody claimed the body for the last 3 months.
Police Media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that suspect Himali Karunarathna was the only daughter of a business family in Kollupitiya.
He said that suspect’s driver Sampath Kavinda, alleged contract killer Susantha and his accomplice were also arrested yesterday.
