Protests were launched against the failure of sand miners to fill up the pits dug by them. These pits have already claimed the lives of a number of individuals.

Area residents of Katana, Udangunwa, Thoppuwa, Murunette, Jambugaswatte and Halpe areas joined the protest.

On the 30th of last month (September), two children from Kochchikade Negombo fell into these unguarded pits and lost their lives .

The area residents called on authorities to take steps to fill up these pits which have transformed into death traps.
