A tense situation arose opposite the Moratuwa Police Station on Sunday night, following a motor accident in the Egoda Uyana area that claimed the lives of three people.

The group who had arrived at the police station had requested that strict action be taken against those who were arrested following the accident.

However, a senior police official said that the group dispersed after the intervention of the police.

A fifteen-year-old girl and two others were killed when a bus had crashed into a truck, which had then crashed into a bus stand on the Galle Road, resulting in the loss of lives.

Police said that the drivers of the bus and truck had been arrested and that they are to be produced before the Moratuwa Magistrate today.
