A Police team from Palai came under attack from residents, when they had attempted to arrest a suspect of an assault who had resisted the attempt to the arrest last evening.
The suspect a resident from Palai, had allegedly assaulted a person following a dispute after which a complaint was lodged at the Palai Police station on Saturday.
When the Police had gone into the house of the alleged assailant he had reportedly attacked the Police with an axe. In reaction, the Police had opened fire at the suspect and injuring him.
Thereafter crowds had gathered around the house and had attacked the Police vehicle. However the Police team had managed to quell the situation. The suspect was rushed to the Palai hospital and is now receiving further treatment from the Jaffna Hospital.
No suspects have been arrested yet in connection with the attack. (SD)

MRs plan is on course up to now. 1. Pay a billion to one of his cronies to go rape and kill a child in Jafna. 2. Pay another billion to a group of trouble makers to go and stone the courts. 3. And pay another billion for another group to attack the police when they go to arrest those who stoned the courts. With three billion rupees (out of the 2430 billion he has) he can get the country to the brink of another civil war. Very cunning indeed.

Its hard to beleive why the villagers should attack the police when the police try to arrest a criminal. The public definately would support. Either the former king is trying find a room to emter through dpughlus or knowing our corrupted police it could be a different story.

King cancer is making more pressure internally since he wants to come into politics again. So this started from the North, so that Sinhala community will think again problem started so we can vote for previous regime king cancer. This impression only he wants to make with his thieves among the people. HE tried in everyday, so finally he is trying this way also

This should not be allowed. No one has the right to lay their hands on any Police Officer. Arrest the culprit and give him the max. punishment.
Bubble Banda Monday, 25 May 2015 09:59 AM
IGP your prompt action against this man and those who are behind him should be taken. We cannot allow such nasty actions anymore.
