Another suspect, who is believed to be connected to the Kalutara prison bus shooting, has been arrested in Ratmalana.

Police said that the suspect was arrested over charges of aiding and abetting the shooting, which was carried out on a prison bus in Kalutara on February 27.

The attack claimed the lives of two prison wardens and five inmates who were being transported, and Samayan, who is believed to be an underworld leader.

Two mobile phones used to organise the shooting have also been taken into police custody.

The 24-year-old suspect, who is a resident of Kaburugamuwa, is scheduled to be produced before the Kalutara Magistrate’s Court today.
