Another suspect connected to the Mirijjawila shooting on February 26, 2017, was arrested with a locally-manufactured firearm yesterday.

Thirty-three-year-old S. H. Chandana Prasanna of 103/02 Galgeyaya, Etimale, was gunned down while he was on his way home by bus, after appearing at the Hambantota High Court as a suspect for a murder case.

The arrest was made by the Tangalle Division Crime Investigation Unit and the suspect was identified as a 21-year-old resident of Jalamulla in Angunakolapalessa, near the Tangalle bus stand.

Following a tip-off provided by Tangalle Superintendent of Police Laksiri Geethal, the Crime Division conducted a raid at the suspect's house and unearthed the firearm which had been buried in his home garden.
