Ramachandran was a Sri Lankan merchant who killed six people and wounded a seventh in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka during the night from February 1 to February 2, 1954.

Ramachandran, a Hindu, had a Muslim girlfriend, but her father disagreed with their relationship and married her to a Muslim in another town. On the aforementioned night the 30-year-old took an automatic gun, killed six members of her family, including her father, two brothers, two sisters, and an elderly man, and seriously injured her mother. When police arrived at the scene he shot himself dead.[1][2][3][4]
