Underworld figure and drug smuggler Rajapaksa Arachchige Dinuka Madushan alias ‘Keselwatte Dinuka’ has reportedly died in Dubai, UAE yesterday.

Sources said Dinuka has fled to Dubai when he was on bail over a case filed against him several year ago.

Dinuka, who has been operating drugs smuggling, organised crimes and underworld activities from Dubai, has reportedly died of a heart attack.

However, Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said they have not yet received information to confirm the death.

Meanwhile, Dinuka’s mother at Keselwatte said that they would make arrangements to get Dinuka’s body down from Dubai after PCR tests are conducted.
