Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident in which a police officer was injured during a drug raid at Obeysekarapura in Rajagiriya.  

 A policeman sustained injuries when he jumped onto the bonnet of a car driven by drug traffickers during a raid at Obeysekarapura in Rajagiriya on Monday.   

However, the vehicle continued to move on for quite a distance despite the policeman clinging onto it. He however was eventually thrown off the vehicle.   

Police Spokesman SSP Nihal Thalduwa said the car that was involved in the incident was taken into custody. The two suspects were arrested at Thalangama yesterday and the main suspect who is evading arrest has been identified.
