Police shot at a van which had ignored police orders to stop at the Kurunegala, Peelikada junction last afternoon.

All 4 suspects were arrested by the police.

Kurunegala Police had received a tip-off regarding a van transporting heroin from Kandy to Kurunegala around 5.30 last evening.

The van had been signalled to stop by the police, for a spot inspection. However, the driver ignored the order and had attempted to flee from the police.

The Police then pursued the van by motorcycle.

The van was discovered abandoned in Millawa along the Kurunegala – Kandy road. One of the suspects was found in a vacant house located approximately 100 meters away from the site that the van had been abandoned.

The suspect had sustained injuries during the shooting and was admitted to Kurunegala hospital. The remaining suspects were later found, with 35 grams of heroin in their possession at the time of arrest. The suspects are residents of Digana - Kandy.
