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.

The IGP and the Govt should recognize the warning signs of the beginnings of terrorism - disruption and making ineffective law and order, disruption of government organizations and functioning, societal order etc. Its time to take strong action to control the situation!
