A hotel employee has been shot and killed in a clash at 9.45 pm at a nightclub in Periyamulla, Negombo.

The Aziz from the Kekirawa area was the tragic death. Both the hotel owner’s brother, Rizwan, and the employee, Jibri, have been hospitalized with cuts. The men who arrived in the van had fled with the van after the killing. They have disputed the permit to have liquor in the hotel as there is a liquor license in the country.

However, the owner and staff of the hotel have told them not to drink alcohol. It is reported that a hotel worker has been hacked to death by the van. Police are carrying out intensive investigations into this and security is being strengthened on the spot.
