COLOMBO (News 1st); The protest march of the Kelaniya University students reached the Parliamentary roundabout a short while ago, and the students were tear gassed by the Police and were also hit with water cannons by the Police.

The students are engaging in the protest demanding a solution to the country’s economic crisis and against the current regime.

Meanwhile another protest organized by a group of youth was held in Kurunegala today (08).
