By Rathindra Kuruwita

Police have arrested seven people in connection with the murder of Surendra Wasantha Perera, also known as Club Wasantha, on Monday (08).

Among the suspects is Dulan Sanjula, the owner of the tattoo parlour, where Wasantha was shot dead.

However, the police haven’t been able to arrest the gunmen so far.

The suspects, aged between 24 and 37, are residents of Ahungalle, Balapitiya, Ganemulla, Ambalangoda and Beliatte. They were produced before the Kaduwela Magistrate on Wednesday (10) and remanded till July 22 pending investigations.

The police have taken into their custody the mobile phones of the suspects and uncovered that the assassination was ordered by criminals living overseas.

Wasantha’s wife and the sister of Sanjula, who were wounded during the incident, are still undergoing treatment at the Kalubowila and Homagama hospitals. Their condition was critical, police said.
