Search operations in search of a suspect who fled after throttling a police officer
Police has by now launched an operation in search of a suspect who fled after throttling a police officer while he and another person arrested in Anuradhapura were being taken to the police in a three-wheeler.
Police inspected these two persons at Shraavastipura in Anuradhapura while they were traveling in a three-wheeler day-before-yesterday
It has been revealed that they were intoxicated at that time.
Subsequently while one of the two policemen got into the three-wheeler and was travelling in it with the two suspects bound for the police station, one of the suspects thus fled after throttling the policeman.
Reports say that the Anuradhapura traffic police division sergeant who was subjected to the throttling has been admitted to the Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital for treatment.
