“Later, they made a contact and they started negotiating with the family members and his organization. It was later we learnt that the DSS are on the trail of the hoodlums up to Kurfi.

“They (DSS) ask us (police) to come to Kurfi, we went and they also asked us to wait for them at the Kurfi Division. There we also met a detachment of the military.

“Later, our personnel heard a gunshot. And the DSS called for reinforcement. As at the time when our men went there the hoodlums have already escaped. We were told by the DSS officers that there was a gun duel between the two sides.
