One person was injured after police opened fire on a truck that failed to heed orders to pull over in Yalegama, Kosgoda.

The police say that the truck, which was plying from Galle to Colombo, was transporting cattle illegally.

While officers of the Kosgoda Police who were on duty early Sunday morning had flagged down the truck, the driver had disregarded the order and sped past.

One of the suspects was injured in the foot when the police opened fire, and has been admitted to the Balapitiya Hospital.

The police have seized the truck and the livestock it was transporting.

The police say that while two suspects have been arrested, two other suspects had fled.
