Another main suspect in the prison bus attack in Kalutara has fled the country, according to STF intelligence.

Identified as Athurugiriye Ladiya, he has sneaked out the country along with Lasantha Chandana Perera alias Angoda Lokka using boats owned by international drug traffickers.

Their escape had been planned by drug trafficker in the region Makandure Madhush.

The duo had first gone to the area in India where Thel Bala had been operating, from where they had proceeded to an unknown location, investigators have found out.

Makandure Madhush, who lives in Dubai, had reportedly visited Sri Lanka by boat before the attack that killed their rival Aruna Damith Udayanga alias Samayan and six others.
