Sri Lankan police intelligence officer wields gun at TNPF leader Gajen Ponnambalam

A Sri Lankan police intelligence officer pointed his gun to Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF) leader Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam after he was attacked during a meeting in Maruthankerny.

Ponnambalam was at a meeting with a sports club in Maruthankerny earlier today where two unknown men were in the crowd.

While the organisers were trying to verify everyone’s identity at the meeting, the two men refused to provide their details which resulted in an argument.
