The policemen of the genocidal state of Sri Lanka opened fire at a Tamil man, who was trying to protect his nephew when an opposing gang targeted the latter at Ku'lamangkaal in Mallaakam, Jaffna, Sunday night around 7:00 p.m. The 32-year-old man later succumbed to injuries at his shoulder. The police violence has taken place within the premises of the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Chakaaya-maathaa), 11 km northeast of Jaffna city. The episode comes following a minor gang rivalry on the road. SL Policemen who arrived at the entrance to the church intentionally fired to kill the innocent man who was trying to protect his nephew, who was targeted by the opposing gang, eyewitnesses told journalists in Jaffna.

The victim was identified as 32-year-old Sutharshan Packyiyarasa.

Tension prevails in Mallaakam as the people of the area confront the police for firing at the man with the intent to kill him when he was protecting his nephew and was trying to communicate with the policemen who intervened.
