An attack on policemen near the Seeduwa Entrance of the expressway


A gang assaulted two policemen who were attempting to check them as they were behaving suspiciously near the Seeduwa exit gate of the Katunayake-Colombo Expressway.

Seeduwa police said that the persons concerned had fled taking with them the two private motorbikes in which the policemen had come.

Five persons had been noticed hanging suspiciously around a motor vehicle parked near the Seeduwa exit gate of the expressway last afternoon.

Reports say that two policemen in civvies riding in two motorbikes had gone to check the suspects.

At this time the policemen had queried a suspect who had been altering the number plates of the motor vehicle concerned.

Police said that five persons assaulted the policemen with clubs when they were inspecting their identity cards.

Reports say that at that time the suspects had fled taking with them several firearms that had been in the motor vehicle.

However a senior Seeduwa police spokesman said that last night itself one of the suspects had been taken into custody.
