Two Charged With Murder Of Sri Lankan In UK

Two people have been charged with the murder of Thavisha Lakindu Peiris, the 25-year-old student who was stabbed to death last weekend as he made his final pizza delivery before starting a career as an IT consultant, the Guardian reports.

According to the newspaper, Shamraze Khan, 25, of Sheffield, and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are both due to appear at Sheffield magistrates court on Saturday morning.

The body of Peiris, who was originally from Sri Lanka, was found in his car in Southey Crescent, Sheffield, at about 10.30pm last Sunday. A postmortem examination revealed that he died from stab wounds. He was found by fellow Domino’s Pizza workers who had gone looking for him after he failed to deliver what was to be his last order.

Peiris, who came to the UK to finish an IT degree and graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011, had just secured a job as an IT consultant in the city.

His family, who are understood to be making plans to travel to South Yorkshire, described him as the “most caring and loving son a parent could have”.

Speaking from their family home in Sri Lanka, his father Sarath Mahinda Peiris and mother Sudarma Narangoda said: “We sent our son to the UK to study so he can have a better life. Now we are left with only a broken heart.

“We were devastated and shocked to hear of our son’s tragic end and we are still unable to comprehend that he is actually gone.”

      Ohhh Lord, if you exists.

      Finally it comes to Gota and Rajapakses.

      What a dilemma.

      Human migration looking for greener pastures was the one and most important thing spreading humans all over the world.

        Jim Softly, You are flaying in the wind. This is what most of us want in this country. Efficient and quick investigation, prosecution of the guilty, and punishment. For that to happen you need to have independent and impartial investigators, uncompromising prosecutors, and unbiased judges. Mahinda Rajapaksa thinks such action will lose him votes. So how can we respect such shallowness? In fact, how can you?

        Buru Jim softy,

        see this is also a murder comparable to that British murder occured in Tangalle two years ago.

        How quickly UK authorities have convicted the murderers.

        These should be a great example for YOUR HAM PUTHAS… MR.. MR is the high crime doer we ever had in entire developing countries. He either stays silent or directly promotes the crimes by instrumnetalizing Mervin and the like rabied dogs.

        we were not looked down to the manner as is now, in the past. Your Rajapskehs have made all enviroments other states to make us a laughing stock today.

        See, how quicker the british autohrities have reacted in bringing the murderers of the case before the courts.

        Your idiots – beloved MR failed to even hold DNA tests until British govt put all pressures on them. It took srilanken authoriteis to hold that 18 months, not just 18 hours.
        There only they dare to say, that we the lanken have no proper resources. Why not then the authorities failed to sent probe materials to the UK or India to get that done quicker ?

    I cannot understand why SL Government took up Thavisha Lakindu Peiris’s murder with the British government as a big issue without realising, the British police service is independent and is capable of investigating such criminal acts independently.

    He is not the only Sri Lankan to be killed in such sordid manner. There have been many more. There were many Tamil deaths under similar circumstances but the GoSL did not feel they are worthy and kept silent.

    Why make an issue now when an innocent Sinhalese is killed. Is to play dirty politics over the murder of a British citizen two years ago that will only reach the court for a political judgement after the Commonwealth Conference?

    Sri Lanka seems to have lost all its senses in international diplomacy.

    So you thought you could kill a Muslim and get away!

    Kuram Shaikah Zaman was killed by you people and Shamraze Khan and another Muslim killed a person from you.

    The pizza he delivered had ham, bacon and cheese. All Haram.

    May the Merciful One forgive his sins and rest his soul in peace.

    If a Muslim was not killed by the people of his clan he should be still alive. In vain.

    The lesson don’t kill Muslims because if you do you will pay.

      Sister, live and let live, if you wish bad on other people you are only allowing yourself to turn into them. Learn something from Malala… that’s the way all people should live! If you curse others… you will be cursing yourself as well.

        You cant blame him. He is only doing what the Quran tells him to do. Quran is the only Religion book that teaches Hate. Verse after worse it says convert any non-muslims to Muslims or kill them. What
        Kind of religion teaches beheading is right.

          It is not the religion that is corrupt… it is the people.
          You cannot blame the actions of a person on his / her religion. also when people convert its by their own free will… people convert to other religions not only Muslim, it is there choice to choose their faith.
          Instead of scolding others based on religion lets try to promote peace. we are the masters of our own fate and it is how we act that determines how others respond. Some people are full of hate cause they dont understand what its like to be loved… so lets go easy on fathima…she just merely does not understand that she is saying things not out of justice but of hate. which we should not pay attention to

            It is the religion itself also; Islam proscribes people of non Islamic cultures and considers them inferior. Muhammed waged war against those who did not agree with him. Hinduism created the evil caste system , a religious system that labelled people as inferior and superior from birth. Judaism says Jews are superior to all other peopele, as they are god’s choosen people.

            So it really is the religion itself that is the problem; people try to excuse way and coverup the fact these Religions themselves preach and dictate that some people and cultures are superior and some inferior.

          The problem with the muslims is they tell everything openly hurting other people,they have to learn to be civilized not to hurt anyone and to kick others butt by means of hypocricy.

    In UK the law enforcement officers decide how the law and order is applied whereas in Sri Lanka the president or his close friends at Attorny General’s Office or de facto Supreme Court judge decides the fates of the culprits or suspects.

    The killers of the British tourist and rapists of his girl friend may be acquitted if in the opinion of the de facto CJ that the accused are of good character.

    It is ironical that a British Muslim from Rochdale, Khuram Shaikh gets murdered in Sri Lanka by some Sinhalese and now a Sri Lankan Sinhalese gets murdered in UK by a British Muslim, Shamraze Khan.

    [Edited out] chingala [Edited out] have an attitude problem. i don’t think peiris was totally innocent. i have no doubt he must have said something in the usual chingala way for the guy to react. chingala idiots even when they move abroad they carry with them the same old attitude. this is not a racist murder as the offender is not white.

    Some poor mother’s womb must be burning with fire as she heard her dear Son on whom she had pinned so much hopes and dreams was brought down by an idiot’s knife in a frenzy, probably looking for a few pounds to buy his next fix.
    A future of a bright young spark brought to an end and the dreams of a family shattered!
    I wouldn’t wish it on, even to my worst enemy!

    I think we Sinhala Buddhists feel the pain of Thavisha Lakindu Peiris’ mother on the loss of her son. We need to understand that that is exactly how Tamil mothers feel at the loss of their sons who were murdered with impunity by the armed services. There is no excuse for murder. None whatsoever.

    This horrible crime was investigated, and resulted in quick arrests of the criminals. Justice will now be served in a court of law….if only our country did the same for a British citizen who was brutally killed and girlfriend raped by a band of criminals, down south. In Rajapaksa land, if you are chummy with the brothers who rule, no arrests and justice will never be served, as we can all see, years later.

      Daksha what about the NUMEROUS Tamils killed by the “war criminals” in the heart of Colombo and several thousands innocent Tamils killed by bombing, shelling, multi barrel rocket launchers, by starvation and “staged prison riots” etc etc. (too NUMOROUS to mention) from 1950s onwards!!! Are they not human beings!!!Don’t they deserve justice!!!

      U. K is a democracy where all lives are equal irrespective of the language spoken unlike in Sri Lanka. In Sri lanka you have to be a sinhala Budhist or a stooge of the “war criminals” to live safely!!!

    The victim’s own country failed to provide him opportunities for better living and, as many others, he came to the UK but the misfortune of violent death struck him. Yet the authorities in the UK acted according to the law; did not for moment think of the victim’s nationality or position and the suspected culprits have been apprehended. What of the country which the victim came from. It is a shame even worst offences are covered-up for political advantage.

      That’s the difference between Western nations and most Asian nations , the latter are too biased along ethnic,racial,caste, sectarian, skin color lines plus there is the issue of nepotism, cronyism and rule by a few families.

    Ah… Unruly British Kids, where Kids kill kids, Kids(young teenage girls) have Kids, underage kids get drunk, smoke, etc. Judging by the names of the criminals, they are immigrant Pakistanis.

    This kind of crimes are a regular occurrence in so called developed world. There have been lots of incidents that Tamils own corner shops had been attacked by out-of-order-kids.

    Too bad, some Sri Lankan parents abroad do nothing to teach culture and religion to their kids.

    Anyway, May Thavisha attain Nibbana!
