A handcuffed suspect in police custody has jumped in to the Dadugang Oya and fled.

Police Media Spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana said a police officer in the vicinity had also jumped to Dadugang Oya in pursuit of the suspect. The officer has been admitted to the Ragama Hospital for treatment.

The suspect reportedly stole a mobile phone and a passport during a stay at a hotel in Padukka last year, after which he was arrested.

Police said he escaped custody when he arrived with the officers to recover the stolen items from the area.
