The mystery behind Angoda Lokka Death:
Sri Lanka's underworld drug trafficker Angoda Lokka died in July under suspicious circumstances. At Amani Taanji's request, the day after Lokka's death, Sivagamasundari went to Coimbatore and told the city police that Pradeep Singh (Angoda Lokka) was her cousin and that he had died of a heart attack on the 4th of July. After the autopsy, Advocate Sivagamasundari took Lokka's body to Madurai and cremated it there.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan police approached the Tamil Nadu police for further investigation, based on an intelligence report that Angoda Lokka had been murdered and buried in Coimbatore.
Based on this, the city police re-examined the case and found that the documents submitted were fake and that the women involved had deceived Angoda Lokka that it was Pradeep Singh. Police sources said that after receiving the body, they cremated it in Madurai the next day.
Based on a preliminary investigation with the detainees i.e. Amani Tanji, Sivagamasundari and Dhiyaneshwaran, police said they identified the deceased as Madhumake Chandana Lasantha Perera, 35, aka Angoda Lokka, Kotikawatta of Colombo in Sri Lanka.
According to Sri Lankan police intelligence, Angoda Lokka was poisoned to death in India in early July. Sources claim that Amani Tanji has been forcefully taken by Lokka from Dubai by killing her lover and as a revenge Tanji might have murdered Angoda Lokka by living with him, but this reason behind the murder is not yet confirmed officially.
Police have so far arrested Sivagamasundari, Tanji, and Dhiyaneshwaran in connection with the case. The case is currently being re-assigned to CBCID.
