Hakeem tells House shots were fired

Justice Minister Rauff Hakeem informed Parliament today that police investigations had found gun-shots were indeed fired during the Aluthgama violence which led to two deaths and 7 injuries.

Hakeem says he had discussions with the Colombo Crimes Division and scene of the crime police officers over some of the incidents at Dharga town.

The Minister said that the police had found spent bullets from the area and had concluded that shooting did take place at the location.

However he said there was a controversy over the postmortem report submitted regarding the incident.

The Bar Association of Sri Lanka had said that the report had misreported the facts over the incident.

Hakeem said one postmortem report had noted that one death occurred due to shooting while the other reports were unclear.
