The Homagama Court has granted permission to the Police to detain a Director of the Co-operative Insurance Company and four suspects arrested in connection with the shooting and injuring the new Chairman of the Co-operative Insurance Company Dharshana Samarawickrama, for 48 hours at the Meegoda Police station and conduct investigations.

The Police had arrested a Director of the Co-operative Insurance Company, the suspected shooter, an ex-serviceman, his assistant and a private bus owner who took the contract to kill the new Chairman of the Co-operative Insurance Company.

It is said that the arrested Director of the Co-operative Insurance Company had given the contract to kill the new Chairman.

The Western South Crime Division informed the Illegal Assets Investigation Division of the Criminal Investigation Department yesterday (12) to conduct an investigation into the assets of this person. An officer said that within 10 to 15 years, this person has become extraordinarily rich and there is a doubt whether he became extraordinarily rich from money earned legally. Investigations have revealed that he holds 23 percent shares in the Co-operative Insurance Company alone, of which this person is a director.

This person is a close associate of the former chairman of the Co-operative Insurance Company.

The shooting took place while Samarawickrama was on his way to take over the duties as Chairman of Co-operative Insurance Corporation at around 7.35am last Monday. Two people who came on a bike had shot him.
