GALLE, Sri Lanka – A shocking incident unfolded in Southern Sri Lanka as armed assailants opened fire at the prestigious W15 Hotel, owned by MH Jameel, son of Governor Muzzamil. The attack is believed to have involved Public Security Minister Tiran Alles, shedding light on a dangerous nexus between political figures and criminal elements.
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. Weligama Police officers, accompanied by military personnel, rushed to the scene, leading to a confrontation with the assailants.
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.
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 society.
