Notorious Nawala Nihal nabbed

By Senaka De Silva
DM 27JUNE2005


Notorious gang leader Nawala Nihal and two others were arrested in connection with extorting Rs 15 million and demanding 54 perches of land from the owners.

CCD Chief Sarath Lugoda said 400 perches of land belonging to a leading Colombo press owner and a relative of his had been put up for sale recently. When Nawala Nihal allegedly demanded Rs. 285,000 per perch and wanted a part of the land written in his name they had to give in to the demand as they wanted to sell the land and called the suspects to complete the transaction. Meanwhile the land owners had also informed the CCD of this extortion attempt.

The Crimes Division apprehended Nawala Nihal and two of his henchmen on Saturday as they were coming out after completing the transaction. It is reported that Nawala Nihal had been released from Welikada prison a month ago. They were produced before Colombo Magistrate and remanded till July 10.
