COLOMBO (News 1st) – The strike action launched by private bus employees of buses plying along the Chilaw – Colombo route continued for a 4th day today. (July 30)

Our correspondent in the area noted that other bus operators have also joined this strike action. Both regular and AC buses operating on the Puttlam – Colombo route, as well as buses operating on the Anamaduwa – Colombo and Negombo – Chilawroute have joined the strike action.

The strike was launched on the 26th of this month after a driver on a Chilaw – Colombo bus was assaulted in Colombo. The driver was hospitalised due to the nature of his injuries.

The bus operators are engaged in a strike calling on the police to take action. However, the police noted that an investigation has been launched into the incident by a number of police stations including the Chilaw, and Madampe police stations.
