[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 July 2005, 00:07 GMT]
Mr. Mohammad Ameen, 39, a former agricultural minister of Central Province, was among the 4 persons found dead by the Police in Colombo Saturday morning, sources said. Mr Ameen was kidnapped last Friday in Pusalawa in Gampola. A Land Cruiser vehicle with the four bodies was located at Malalasekara Mawatha, near the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), in Colombo-7 Saturday morning. Police suspected involvement of an underworld gang for the killings.

Hands of the victims were bound behind their backs and their eyes were covered with cloths, sources said.

Colombo Police has initiated investigations into the killings.

Sri Lanka reintroduced capital punishment in November 2005, following the murder of a high court judge, Mr. Sarath Ambepitiya, by gunmen allegedly linked to drug trafficking.
