Police are also investigating an incident where a suspicious individual had arrived at a vehicle rental establishment in Gokarella the previous day, seeking to hire a vehicle.

Police are focussing on the disparity in the information and photograph of the identification he had provided in reference to the driving licence the suspect had produced, said Police Media Spokesperson, SSP Ajith Rohana.

“This is the fake driving license. The picture is of the individual in question but the name and address are false. We ask that the public inform us if they have any information on this individual. He had come there to rent a vehicle. The proprietor had been suspicious about the driving license and had phoned the Gokarella Police at which point the individual had left his driving license there and fled.”

The police have offered a reward of one million rupees for information leading to the arrest of the suspects in the murder kidnapping. Information can be provided on the hotline 077 265 9336.
