Two officers attached to the Government Intelligence Service were hospitalised today with injuries due to a sword attack by two unidentified motorcyclists who had allegedly stabbed them in Chunnakam, Jaffna.

The injured officers receiving treatment at the Tellipalei Hospital were transferred to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

The condition of the injured is said to be not critical.

They were identified as Police Sergeant Nawarathne and Police Constable Herath.

Security of the Chunnakam area is tightened with the presence of the Special Task Force.

A special investigation was launched to arrest the assailants of the sword attack. (Selvanayakam Kapilan, Romesh Madushanka)

    If they can be identified as intelligence officers, technically they are not intelligence officers at all.

    Sarath Keep Watching and waiting. People like you have forgotten the past and now act as heroes.

    Such incidents are normal and can happen. It is impossible to maintain a zero incident scenario. This is simply trying to fish in the troubled waters by the extremists in North. It seems North is turning out to be a Kashmir under RW
