Wanatha protest end with festivities

The protest staged at Baseline road, Colombo   against the abduction of an individual named Samaradheera Sunil, a resident of 34 Watta, Wanathamulla, ended last evening (15) as the abducted individual returned to the location.

A group of residents from Wanathamulla commenced a protest in Mount Mary area of the Baseline road claiming that Samaradheera Sunil was abducted.
The road traffic was affected as the protesters blocked the road in several occasions.

United National Party parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake, Western province chief minister candidate of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Lal Kantha and JVP former provincial councilor Sunil Watagala also arrived at the location.

The public expressed their grief to them. MP Ravi Karunanayake got into an argument with Senior DIG Anura Senanayake.

A heated situation occurred as the parliamentarian Duminda Silva visited the location.

The Senior DIG Anura Senanayake promised the protesters that Sunil will be returned to them within 45 minutes.

The protesters who moved out of the road following the promise remained in the location until Sunil arrived.

However, Sunil has given a call to her wife around 5.00 pm saying that the group which abducted him left him at Biyagama.

After Sunil arrived at the location where the protest was staged around 6.00 pm the protesters stopped the protest and dispersed cheering.

It has been revealed that the middle aged Sunil has criticized Defence Secretary in a public rally regarding the forceful removal of the residents from their houses.
