Political Turmoil Unveiled: Public Security Minister Linked to Violent Attack on Business Tycoon in Southern Sri Lanka

-By A Special Correspondent

(Lanka-e-News -01.Jan.2024, 11.20 PM) A shocking incident unfolded in the Southern part of Sri Lanka as armed assailants opened fire at the prestigious W15 Hotel, owned by MH Jameel, son of Governor Muzzamil. The assailants, who arrived in a van, targeted Jameel in what appears to be a carefully orchestrated attack with alleged involvement of Public Security Minister Tiran Alles.

The sequence of events began when a group of individuals in a van approached the W15 Hotel, firing indiscriminately at the property. Quick-thinking hotel administrators immediately called the local Weligama Police emergency line for assistance. Responding promptly, Weligama Police officers, accompanied by military personnel, rushed to the scene.

Upon arrival, a confrontation ensued between the security forces and the assailants. Shots were exchanged, and the van attempted to flee towards the Imaduwa entrance of the highway. The pursuit continued until the van was intercepted by police officers at the highway entrance. In a dramatic twist, the person identified as the mastermind behind the attack revealed himself as Sub Inspector Anslum Pieries of the Dematagoda Police Crime Division.

Alarming reports suggest that Inspector Pieries called a senior police officer in Colombo seeking assistance to allow the van, carrying injured individuals, to escape to Colombo. However, the officers at the highway entrance, determined to uphold the law, refused to permit the escape and instead called for an ambulance to transport the injured to Karapitiya Hospital.

Tragically, during the course of these events, Police Sergeant Upul Kumara, 46 years old and a father of two from Matale, lost his life. The incident at the W15 Hotel has laid bare a shocking nexus between political figures and criminal elements, as reports surface of a property dispute between Minister Tiran Alles and MH Jameel over the Flower Road property.

The contested property has become the epicenter of a bitter feud, with Tiran Alles and notorious criminal Duminda Silva allegedly attempting to wrest ownership from MH Jameel. Jameel, a British passport holder and director of multiple companies in Sri Lanka, is now at the center of a dangerous power struggle that has escalated into violence, endangering the lives of those involved and innocent bystanders.

As investigations unfold, the nation waits anxiously for answers, demanding accountability and justice. The incident not only exposes the vulnerability of public figures but also raises questions about the rule of law and the influence of politicians in the country's security apparatus. The tragic loss of Police Sergeant Upul Kumara serves as a stark reminder of the human cost of political and criminal machinations that threaten the stability of our society.
