The police have initiated an operation in search of the suspects who attacked a police officer with a bottle, at a restaurant in the Thambuttegama area.

Police say they have already arrested one suspect in connection with the incident.

The police say that an argument arose when two police officers who were on patrol had interrogated a group of people at the restaurant in Thambuttegama.

One of the suspects had attacked a police officer with a bottle and had taken away his firearm.

Following a tip-off that the suspects were hiding in a nearby jungle area,  police commenced a search operation on Monday.

The Police Media Spokesperson’s Office says that two of the suspects had fled the area.
