Underworld elements murder beautician in Kottawa!

2 underworld individuals who barged into a house in Kottawa, Rukmale area had fled after shooting down a beautician, it is reported.

As a consequence she was remanded those days in connection with that crime and she was bailed out; but because of threats made at her, she had been in hiding for about 6 months.

Yesterday the said murder had taken place at a time she had returned home and was in the company of her children and husband. There had been two other cases filed against her in relation to financial involvements and last evening she had arrived at Kaduwela Courts and after being freed of those cases she had come out once again from the places where she had been hiding and the said assailants may have come to know about it, it is understood.

She had after seeing the assailants had then run towards the mother-in-law and embraced her; however, the criminals had continued aiming a barrage of shots at her, it was revealed at investigations. It was subsequently known that about 14 gun shots were aimed at her. Investigations are underway over the incident.
