(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – Sri Lanka police urged the protesting public to refrain from blocking or damaging bowsers transporting fuel.
Senior Police Media Spokesman Senior DIG Ajith Rohana requested the public not to get involved in any activities likely to sabotage the fuel transportation system in the country as it would in turn affect the fuel distribution network.
Senior DIG Ajith Rohana pointed out that if the fuel supply network is disrupted, other essential service supply networks may also be disrupted.
Police Chief C.D. Wickramaratne told media that a protester during the protest in Rambukkana yesterday was attempting to set fire to a bowser carrying 30,000 liters of fuel.
Therefore, the spokesman said the police request the public not to hinder the free movement of fuel bowsers to ensure a smooth run of the supply chain across the country.
