Police protection for Pitiduwe Siridhamma Thera
Police protection has been given to the Siri Sandaham Ashram at Bellantota in Boralesgamuwa, headed by Ven. Pitiduwe Siridhamma Thera.
The monk, who now calls himself Siri Samanthabadra, recently challenged several other monks for a dhamma discourse.
They include Ven. Dodampahala Rahula, Ven. Bandarawela Amithananda and Ven. Medagoda Abhayatissa Theras.
Yesterday (Nov. 07), a group of monks led by Ven. Abhayatissa Thera visited the Ashram.
Around 40 monks, along with several laity, had entered the premises and challenged its chief.
Minister Mervyn Silva too, was present there.
Later, the SP of Nugegoda deployed a police team to bring the situation under control.
