Anti-SAITM protest teargassed

Anti-SAITM protest teargassed

Police fired teargas and used water cannons to disperse the anti-SAITM protesters who were protesting at the Kollupitiya Junction a short while ago.

A court order was earlier issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate against the protest march by the anti-SAITM groups, including the Inter University Students' Federation (IUSF).

The Court ordered the protesters to conduct the protest in a decent and polite manner without disrupting the general public and vandalizing public property.

It also ordered them not to enter the Presidential Secretariat Office by any means.
