Police investigate death of youth

The Panadura South Police Crime Branch is conducting investigations into the death of 25-year-old Randika Samanpriya, whose body was recently found in a well near the old Panadura Sri Lanka Transportation Board bus stand. Samanpriya was a resident of Newdawa. His body was discovered by police on the night of August 23.

Panadura Acting Magistrate Jayanthi Peiris had also visited the scene of the crime. Investigations revealed that the victim had held an alms-giving for his late mother on August 20.

He had found his wallet missing and lodged a complaint about it with the Panadura Police, but his brother had later called the police and said that he had not returned home. The Panadura Acting Magistrate ordered a postmortem to be performed on the body as foul play is suspected.
