The incident happened on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

Sources said that the police attached to the Surulere Police Division, were planning to convey the arrested soldier and his motorcycle to the station when no fewer than 20 soldiers stormed the premises.

A source said; “When they got there, they started attacking the policemen till they were able to set the man that was arrested free. They also dispossessed the policemen of the seized motorcycle and went away with it.

“The man that was arrested did not wear uniform, but after the attack, he and the soldiers entered the Abalti Barracks. That is why it is believed that he is also a soldier. The incident happened around 10.30pm on Wednesday.

“But immediately they spotted police reinforcement, the soldiers took to their heels and ran into the barracks.”
