Acting on a tip-off, a group of policemen attached to the Chilaw police reached an illicit liquor seller at Adippala last night.
Police said, after an altercation between the illicit liquor seller and the policemen, the illicit liquor seller has sought the support of the neighbors to start a clash with the police team.
