Seven police personnel are now being processed for criminal negligence in a murder case that occurred three weeks ago.

Police reported that the personnel had brought in a wounded suspect from Goilala, Central Province, who later died of loss of blood when he was rushed to the hospital.

The men will be appearing in court for mention tomorrow.

The officers were all attached with the Saraga police station at Six-Mile.
