by Norman Palihawadane

The remains of Sri Lankan executive Priyantha Kumara Diyawadana, who was brutally murdered while working in a factory in Pakistan, would be brought to Sri Lanka today (06), the Sri Lankan High Commission in Islamabad said.

The Sri Lankan factory manager was beaten to death and set ablaze by an angry mob who accused him of blasphemy, on Friday in Sialkot, a district in central Punjab province.

About 235 suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of Priyantha Kumara Diyawadana; they include those who assaulted him and those who videoed the assault.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has assured President Gotabaya Rajapaksa that the perpetrators of the brutal murder will be brought to justice and will be given maximum punishment.



Thank you
