Arumugam Kuhendran, 28, an alleged member of Karuna Group, was shot and killed by an unknown gunman while he was visiting a hotel in Chilaw, a town located in the West coast 50km south of Puttalam Saturday around 12:30 p.m, Police said.

After killing Kuhendran, the gunman tried to flee the scene in a three-wheeler. He stopped the three-wheeler half way and boarded a bus. Chilaw Police gave chase to the bus and arrested the man and recovered a revolver he was carrying, according to Police sources.

A Sinhala youth was also injured in the shooting, was rushed to Chilaw Hospital and later transferred to Colombo Hospital, hospital sources said.

The Hotel where the shooting incident took place, is situated near a police check point.

Chilaw Police is conducting investigations into the killing.
