Group in motor bikes attack 2 cops in Jaffna: conspiracy to overturn reconciliation between the races !

(Lanka-e-News- 31.July.2017, 11.30PM)    Following a sword attack launched by an unidentified group that arrived  on motorbikes on two police officers on 30 th (morning ) when they were travelling along Ponnadi road , Kopay police division , Kokuvil , Jaffna , the two victims  of the attack were admitted to Jaffna hospital. 

According to a doctor of Jaffna hospital, because one of the police officer was in a serious  condition , he had to undergo surgery.
When these two officers were traveling in uniform on  the motorbike for an inquiry in Kopay at about 1.45 p.m. , about 8 individuals who came on  four motorbikes have attacked them . The victims are Surendran a Tamil police constable  (P.C.) ,and Dhammika a Sinhalese P.C. , Jaffna security sources revealed. 

No arrests have been made yet  and entire Jaffna is under security alert. 

Jaffna police are conducting investigations.

Following the Sinhalese sergeant sacrificing his life to rescue the Tamil high court judge Ilencheliyan recently , and the latter weeping at the funeral of the sergeant ,there arose a strong feeling  for  reconciliation between the two races  .Racism dropped to zero level  , and Tamil youths of Jaffna lit oil lamps on behalf of the late Sinhalese sergeant. It is therefore very clear  a group of  extremists who cannot bear to see unity of races  and harmony   is responsible for this attack.

It is therefore the paramount duty of the government to nip this in the bud by deploying  all its resources and somehow tracking  down these extremists and punishing  them duly.
