Relatives of a suspect who was arrested by the Galle- Naagoda police complained that their 37-year family member died due to an assault by the police.

A group of residents staged a protest by blocking Rekadahena Kahadoowa road citing the Nagoda police should be held responsible for the death.

The victim has been identified as Gamini Priyashantha of Rekadahenawatta in Kahadoowa.

However, the mother and the brother of the victim told our news team that he died of a police assault inside the police cell.

When our news team contacted Naagoda Police, a spokesman stated that they rejected the allegation by the relatives of the victim.

He said however, the police will record a statement from the relatives with regard to the incident.
