Provincial Councillor arrested with underworld gang

The police STF today (23) arrested Western Provincial Councillor Randeer Rodrigo and seven underworld thugs after a clash in the Henpitagedara area in Divulapitiya.

One underworld leader is reported as dead.
The STF has seized one toy gun, two pistols and a grenade.
The group was travelling in a van when they were ordered to stop by the STF. Instead of doing so, they had opened fire on the STF members. Although one STF personnel was hit, he had escaped unscathed due to his bulletproof vest.
