Weeraketiya clash : 7 remanded



The seven civilians who were arrested over the clash in Weeraketiya have been remanded until March 21.

The clash had broken out when residents at Attanayala in Weeraketiya had allegedly obstructed police from carrying out their duties.

The situation arose when a group of police officers had visited the area last evening (March 06), and had proceeded to search a group of people who were waiting by the road, due to suspicion.

However, the said group of individuals had objected to the attempt to search them, which later led to an argument with the police officers before the incident had escalated into a brawl.

Eight police officers and two civilians were injured in the incident.
