Sri Lankan soldier arrested over armed robbery in Jaffna

A Sri Lankan soldier was arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a house in Inuvil, Jaffna, which left a woman hospitalised.

The house was broken into in the early hours of Sunday morning and residents attacked by five masked, armed men.

Following investigations and a secret tip-off, Chunnakam police arrested a soldier after a laptop stolen from the Inuvil house was found at his residence in Punnalaikattuvan.

After questioning, the soldier revealed the identities of the remaining suspects whom police reported were all in hiding.
