Another murder in Kotahena
A 33 year old man has been stabbed to death at Jampettah Street, Kotahena by a group of four unidentified assailants who arrived in a three-wheeler.
Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the victim was released on bail a month ago in connection with a case against him. He said the man had been charged with murder, robbery and the possession of a hand grenade.
