Two unidentified gunmen riding a motorbike shot and wounded two Sri Lankan policemen at a restaurant 50 meters away from the Nelliyady police station in Jaffna around 9:45 p.m. Friday. The wounded policemen were rushed to Palaly Military Hospital. One policeman later succumbed to his wounds at the military hospital, Sri Lanka Army sources said.

The restaurant is located in front of a petrol station along the Jaffna-Point Pedro road.

Policemen at the Nelliyady police station opened fire at the gunmen escaping from the scene. However, the speeding motorbike-gunmen managed to escape, police said.

All shops were closed in the area following the incident and tension prevailed in Nelliyady.
