The body of a man who had died under suspicious circumstances was found on the Urawatta railway track in Ambalangoda this morning (18), the Ambalangoda Police said.
Police said the victim was aged around 30.
The train drivers observed serious injuries on the victim’s head and said he appeared to be missing a part of his leg. They said that he had not been hit by a train.
Police suspect that the victim may have been killed elsewhere and his body has been placed at the railway track to show that he was hit by a train.
The residents said the man was not from around the area and that this could be another murder in the Ambalangoda killing spree.
