Police Brutality Continues: No More Batons Now It’s Iron Bars

Photographic evidence shows that police yesterday used iron bars to attack the anti-SAITM protesters who were protesting at the Kollupitiya Junction.

At least 14 protestors have been injured and admitted to the National Hospital, Colombo.

Meanwhile the National Police Commission has launched an investigation into an assault committed by an Assistant Superintendent of Police on a detained protester during the riots that broke out in Hambantota last week. Secretary of the NPC Ariyadasa Cooray told media that discussions will be held today with regards to the alleged assault.
