The Police dismissed reports in certain web sites stating that a woman had been killed while trying to save her son from motorcycle gangs in Jaffna, adding that the incident had no connection to the Aava gangs in the North.

Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara clarifying the incident said that a clash had occurred between two groups of youths in the Kopai, Uralu area over a personal feud and when the mother of one of the boys had intervened and tried to break up the fight, she was assaulted and had sustained injuries.
