A body of a male was found lying near the Dhathu Mandiraya of the Heiyanthuduwa Siri Devamitta Viharaya in Biyagama in the early houses of January 27. It was identified as Mallika Appuhamilage Prabath Madusanka (30), a father of two, of Kurunduwatta, Lunugama.

He was a driver of a school bus.

A bhikku attached to the temple complained to Sapugaskanda police that after being awakened by a loud commotion from the direction of the Dhathu Mandiraya around 3.30 am on January 27, he switched on the lights of the temple premises and proceeded to the place to see a man fallen there. He also saw two others fleeing the scene and disappearing into the nearby thicket.
