#NABBED: Chief suspect in Khuram Shaikh killing arrested in Sri Lanka

Police in Sri Lanka have arrested the chief suspect in the murder of British Red Cross worker Khuram Shaikh.

A spokesman for the police Central Investigations Department (CID) said that Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidanapathirana, a local council government councillor in the southern town of Tangalle, was arrested on Tuesday after months on the run.

Mr Shaikh, 32, from Rochdale was on holiday in Tangalle in December 2011 when he was set upon by a gang of six men led by Vidanapathirana who is also accused of gang-raping a Russian tourist later the same night.

Mr Shaikh was shot and stabbed to death at a hotel bar on Christmas Day.  He had travelled to Sri Lanka for a short break from his work as a prosthetic limb specialist with the Red Cross in the Gaza Strip.

According to reports the perpetrators managed to elude police for more than two years as the main suspect was shielded by the administration of President Mahinda Rajapakse.

However, British Prime Minister David Cameron is said to have personally petitioned Mr Rajapakse during the recent Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka.
