A soldier was taken into custody for killing an army officer and injuring another officer by shooting them in Jaffna today, army officials said.

The suspect soldier attached to the 18th Gemunu Watch in Chavakachcheri was taken into custody by the two officers as he was fleeing the camp.

Jaffna Security Forces Commander Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe said the soldier had fled the camp with a weapon last morning.

 “The company commander along with a team arrested him in an area close to the camp and was then brought back to his post in Chavakachcheri,” he said.

“He was then being brought to be produced before the Battalion Commander. On the way, he had grabbed a weapon of a fellow soldier who was on duty at a nearby check post and shot the two officers,” he added.

The lieutenant sustained injuries to one of his hands and was admitted to the Palali Hospital by the Army.

The suspect was arrested by the army and is under the custody of the military police. He was later handed over to the Chavakachcheri police. (SD)

    Why hand him to the Civilian Police? He should face an Army court- martial & be tried under military law and executed for murder of an officer.
