It has been revealed that the slain person, 28, a resident of 4th mile post in Trincomalee, had snatched a gold chain from a young woman in Kantaley, and was fleeing the site in a three-wheeler with two other accomplices.

Following a complaint made by the young woman, two police officers had chased down the three wheeler on motorbike.
