Coimbatore (News 1st); Seven special teams have been formed to conduct investigations into the death of Sri Lankan underworld don “Angoda Lokka”, CB-CID inspector general of police K Shankar said on Tuesday, according to the Times of India.

“We started the investigation today. OH Raju, DSP, has been appointed as the investigation officer. We would conduct investigations in various angles including the reason for the death of “Angoda Lokka”, said Shankar.

The Director-General of Police (DGP) for the Indian State of Tamil Nadu J. K. Tripathy on Monday (03) transferred the case of the suspicious death of Sri Lankan underworld don “Angoda Lokka” to the Crime Branch-CID from the Coimbatore city police.

The Times of India reported, the CB-CID took over the case in the evening and registered two fresh FIRs in the night.

“We have registered an FIR under section 174 CrPC (suspicious death) and another FIR for the fabrication of documents to obtain Aadhaar card,” inspector general of police, CB-CID, K Shankar said.

“This case has an international connection, and the Coimbatore city police cannot go beyond a limit for investigation. So, we requested the DGP to transfer the case to CB-CID,” a city police officer said, quoted by the Times of India.

Indian reports suggest Maddumage Chandana Lasantha Perera alias “Angoda Lokka” (35) was living in a rental house at Green Garden near Cheran Maa Nagar in the city in disguise till he died under questionable circumstances on July 3rd.

A woman named Amani Dhanji (27) of Sri Lanka was staying with him since February 2020, the report said.

Madurai-based lawyer T Sivakami Sundari (36) helped “Angoda Lokka” hide at her residence for three months.

Sundari sought help from her friend S Dhiyanesawaran, (32) of Tirupur to take a rental home in his name in Coimbatore city for “Angoda Lokka” and Amani Dhanji.

“Angoda Lokka” had hidden his citizenship and obtained an Aadhaar card in the name of Pradeep Singh, said the Times of India.

Dhanji confirmed the death of Lokka, reported the Times of India.

Following the postmortem, the dead body of “Angoda Lokka” was taken to Madurai by Sivakami and Dhanji and cremated there.

On Sunday, police arrested her, lawyer Sivakami and Dhiyanesawaran.
