The 45-year-old billionaire businessman Subasinghe was on a leisure trip along with his Brazilian wife, daughter aged four.

They had been accompanied by an unidentified Brazilian female, whom the family had met in Colombo prior to their departure to Jakarta.

The Foreign Ministry and the Sri Lankan ambassador are also looking into the incident.
