The strike action launched by the inmates arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act has been called off following the government’s assurance to provide rehabilitation.

When News1st made inquiries into the incident, Commisioner General of Prisons Rohana Pushpakumara said the strike action was called off after prison officials provided meals to the protesting inmates.

Meanwhile, Office of the Opposition Leader R Sampanthan reported the strike action has been temporarily called off until December 15.
