Rambukkana shooting : Witness says police set fire to three-wheeler


A magisterial inquiry was carried out into the recent police shooting in Rambukkana and other connected incidents.

Our correspondent said the driver of the three-wheeler that was allegedly set on fire during the clash has come forward as a witness to the incident.

He testified before the Magistrate that he had witnessed a group of police officers setting fire to the vehicle.

Meanwhile, another witness, who claims he can identify the officers who fired during the protest, refused to testify at the time in fear of the potential threat to his life following the confession.

However, he said that officers who were not attached to the Rambukkana Police were also among those who opened fire.
