Five suspects, including three women, were arrested for assaulting a group of STF and interrupting their duty during an illegal sand mining raid at Ariyalai in Jaffna last evening.

Police said a team of Special Task Force (STF) personnel attached to the Jaffna STF camp had left for Ariyalai area yesterday to arrest a group of illegal sand miners in the area.

The STF arrested several suspects during the raid and then another group of racketeers attempted to release the arrested sand miners from the STF custody by assaulting the STF personnel.

The arrested suspects are aged between 18 and 34 and were identified as residents of Ariyalai. The STF also seized a tractor and motorcycle along with the five suspects.

They were handed over to the Jaffna Police. (DS)
