IGP Pujith Jayasundare who is on a visit to Jaffna today said that the main suspect involved in the attack on two police constables in Kopay was a former LTTE member.

Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said Jaffna Senior DIG Roshan Fernando was leading the investigations while the security in the area was tightened following the incident.

The gangsters who arrived on four motorcycles had attacked police constables Surendra and Dhammika of the Kopay Police with swords and clubs on Sunday afternoon while they were inquiring into a complaint in an area close to the Nanthavil Amman Kovil in Kondavil.

The injured constables are warded at the Jaffna Teaching Hospital.
