COLOMBO (News 1st); The Inter-University Bhikku Federation gathered in Pettah on Thursday (8) evening to protest demanding the immediate release of student activists who are held under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Sri Lanka Police informed the monks and the other student activists who gathered opposite the Pettah Bo Tree, to disperse immediately, however, the group led by the Monks started a protest campaign.

Ven. Udenigama Gunarathne Thero, a member of the Inter-University Bhikku Federation said those in government who committed murder, theft, and sold off public property should be arrested.

"Although there are no queues for fuel, people have not gotten fuel. The same goes for the price of goods. Electricity and Water tariffs were increased and the prices of goods also continue to increase," said the Venerable Thero

The protesters dispersed after about an hour.
