Two arrested over Sulaiman killing

Police yesterday arrested two men, aged 22 and 23, on suspicion of being involved in the abduction and killing of 29-year-old Bambalapitya businessman Mohamed Shakib Sulaiman, whose decomposing body was discovered near a landfill at Rukulagama in Mawanella-Hemmathagama on 24 August.

A senior Police source told Ceylon Today that it was very likely that the two arrested men were the ones who phoned in the ransom demand to Sulaiman's father at his residence in Bambalapityiya. The demand came a day after the victim was abducted.

Sulaiman's body was discovered three days after he was abducted. The ransom call had been made from a public phone booth in Kegalle. The caller had said he would call again giving a bank account number into which he wanted the ransom money deposited. He never called again. The Colombo Crimes Division is conducting further investigations.
