A protest was staged by the Kala – Oya Private Bus owners Association, blocking the Anuradhapura-Puttalam main road, near the Kala Oya Bridge. The protest was staged against the arrest of two of its employees.

A bus belonging to the Puttalam – Sri Lanka Transport Board was attacked by a group of people  at the Rajanganaya junction on Saturday.

Our correspondent said that the driver and the conductor of the private bus owners association were arrested, following a complaint which was lodged with the Rajangana Police by the driver of the SLTB bus which was attacked.

The suspects who were presented before court were ordered to be remanded until November 1. The protest was staged owing to this action. However, half an hour later, the protesters dispersed following a request made by the Rajanganaya police.
