Sri Lankan Navy camp searched in connection with Ariyalai murder

A Sri Lankan Navy camp in Jaffna was searched by police on Thursday in connection with the murder of a Tamil man in Ariyalai last week.

24-year-old Don Bosco Rikman was shot in Ariyalai East on Sunday afternoon and later died from internal bleeding while receiving treatment at Jaffna Teaching Hospital.

After receiving an anonymous tip-off about the location of the vehicle used by the assailants, the Sri Lankan Criminal Investigation Department secured a warrant to search the Gotabaya navy camp in Mandaithivu from Kayts magistrates court.

However police announced later that the search had produced no evidence and that investigations continue.
