Two navy men were remanded till May 25 by the Matara Magistrate today after a stone was discovered in a backpack of one of them while they were participating in the victory day parade held in Matara yesterday, police said.

Police spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the stone was found inside the bag of a navy man who pushed the wheel chair of a disabled sailor.

ASP Gunasekara said after the sailor had claimed that someone else must have put the stone in his bag to embarrass him, another sailor was also arrested on suspicion.
