Police Sergeant Sarath Premachandra (24330), who died in the Nallur shooting while escorting a High Court Judge, was posthumously promoted to Sub Inspector (SI) rank, Police said.

They said the Police Sergeant was killed in the line of duty when escorting Jaffna HC Judge M. Ilancheliyan and his security detail at Nallur in Jaffna on Saturday (22). Another Police constable sustained injuries and is receiving treatment in hospital.

    The hero who sacrificed his life to protect the judiciary of the country definitely deserves much better rewards. Will the Jaffna traders come forward?
