DIG’s henchmen committed 8 other murders
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) suspects the police officers, who are being interrogated in connection with the murder of millionaire businessman, Mohamed Shiyam, of Bambalapitiya, were involved in 8 other murders.

A high ranking police officer said the police are now gathering more information in that regard.
Meanwhile, information pertaining to a close friend of DIG Vass Gunawardena, who is supposed to have gone with the police officers on the day the businessman was murdered, is also being collected.

A CID team has been dispatched to arrest this individual, and to probe his involvement in the incident.

Investigations have revealed, a van belonging to a relative of an owner of a club in Colombo had been utilized for the crime. Two firearms, allegedly used for the murder, have been taken into custody by the CID at Peliyagoda, and sent to the Government Analyst with Court permission.

The CID is also conducting investigations following the clues that an officer among the police suspects had made fake entries in the registers to give the impression that he had gone outstation on special duty on the day of the crime.

Mean while, DIG Vass Gunawardena will be produced before Colombo Fort Magistrate today (13) for the murder of millionaire businessman, Mohamed Shiyam, of Bambalapitiya.
