Weeping judge bows down to wife of his security officer

High Court judge M Ilancheliyan today met the relatives of the Police officer killed in the line of duty while giving him security and bowed down to the wife of the policeman.

Ilancheliyan had to be escorted away after he put his hands together and bowed down to the policeman’s wife and continued to weep.

The policeman was killed in Nallur in Jaffna yesterday while giving security to the judge.

The policeman was injured after gunmen opened fire targeting the judge in Jaffna yesterday and was admitted to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile lawyers and judges in the North are to stage a protest tomorrow against the incident. (Colombo Gazette)
