Teen arrested over brutal murder in Panadura



A 17-year old has been arrested over the murder of a 23-year-old in the Panadura area, on suspicion of aiding and abetting the main suspect.

The victim was hacked to death in a brutal sword attack near an apparel factory in Wekada, Panadura on Wednesday night (May 31).

The police investigations uncovered that the schoolboy in question had been inside the three-wheeler in which the main suspect arrived to execute the crime.
A long-drawn-out dispute between two groups in the area is believed to have been the motive behind the murder.
