Five police squads have been appointed to probe into the assault of two police officers dressed in civvies in Chunnakam, Jaffna. They were assaulted with sharp weapons.
Reports say that a Police STF squad also has been deployed for the probe.
A clash took place between six persons who had come with their faces masked riding unlicensed motorbikes for extorting ransoms from shops in Chunnakam.
Three police officers in civvies had intervened to contain the clash but the robbers had attacked the police officers and fled.
