A 21-year-old Buddhist monk in a van had died when a weapon of a Policeman accidentally went off during a quarrel with a wanted suspect in Hungama today, Police Spokesman SP Jaliya Senaratne said.

He said two Policemen of the Hungama Police Station had signalled a man on a motorcycle to stop. However, the man had disobeyed the order and fled.
The Policemen then chased the suspect in a motorcycle and nabbed him in the Hathagala area in Hungama at around 11.a.m today.

The Spokesman said a quarrel then ensued when the Policemen tried to arrest the suspect.
“A group of monks, who were in a van on their way to an alms giving had stopped the vehicle seeing the quarrel,” he said.

The firearm of a Policeman had then accidentally gone off killing the monk of the Hathagala Rajamaha Viharaya.

The Spokesman said an investigation was launched into the incident by the Hungama ASP.(DSB and Rathna Chandrasena)
