Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris yesterday issued an order preventing five businessmen, suspected to be connected to the murder of Bambalapitiya-based businessman Mohamed Shakeeb Sulaiman, from leaving the country.
Twenty-nine-year-old Sulaiman disappeared from outside his house down Kotelawala Avenue in Bambalapitiya, on Sunday (21) and was believed to have been abducted. His body was found in Mawanella yesterday morning.
The order preventing them from leaving the country was issued by the Court after considering a request made by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD).
The Magistrate also ordered the Court Registrar to issue copies of his order to the Controller of Immigration and Emigration and to the Director of the Police Intelligence Unit.
