By Hemantha Randunu

Colombo Crime Division (CCD) yesterday arrested an underworld figure ‘Lokka’ who was a key member of a gang led by an underworld kingpin known as Keselwatte Dinuka.

The arrest was made in Colombo.

Investigations have revealed that ‘lokka’ committed crimes on the orders of his boss Dinuka, who is hiding overseas.

The poilice said ‘lokka’ was responsible for a shooting incident where another underworld figure named ‘Mahatturu’ was seriously injured last year.

It was ‘Lokka’ who shot and injured a person named ‘Chana’ and killed his brother on March 8 this year.

Chana was shot at and his brother killed by ‘Lokka’ as they failed to pay extortion money to Keselwatte Dinuka.

The suspect was to be produced before the Colombo Magistrate yesterday.
