The two policemen who were arrested in connection with the death of a man in a shooting at Manalkadu in Point Pedro have been remanded until July 24th.

Meanwhile, residents in the area staged protests in several places against the shooting in Point Pedro today as well.

Protestors have burnt used tires, hurled stones at a STF and destroyed a police post at Tuntalai junction last night.

Meanwhile, an attack has been launched on the residence of one of the suspects at Nelliadi last night.

Point Pedro Police has initiated investigations to arrest the suspects.

A lorry transporting illegally sand was shot at as the driver did not stop despite the police orders last evening at Manalkadu.

A 25-year old man died in the shooting and another man was admitted to hospital with gunshot injuries.

At the same time, a special police team led by an ASP attached to the Police Special Investigation Unit has left for Point Pedro for further investigation into the shooting.
