A group that was putting up a stage for the rally of the common candidate Maithripala Sirisena to be held today (24th) at Kolonnawa has been shot at say reports.
The gang that had come yesterday (23rd) in a defender and a van pasted with Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s posters had shot at the group putting up the stage with two firearms. The police had been present at the time of the incident.
However, no one has been taken into custody yet. Several days ago a group that was pasting posters in the same area announcing Mr. Maithripala Sirisena’s rally were attacked with swords and several had to be admitted to hospital.
