Ragama car hijackers arrested

Three men who had hijacked a car in Ragama last night have been arrested, the police media unit said today.

The police said that the three men had hired the vehicle on the pretext of going on a trip but had later told the driver to get down at gun-point.

Following a police complaint lodged over the incident, a police team from Ragama was deployed to trace the vehicle.

The police had managed to find the vehicle in Ja-Ela and arrested the three suspects. They were to be produced in court today.
