Sealed karaoke bar close to school remains open! Featured

A karaoke bar located close to Bishop’s College, Colombo remains open after being sealed for having sold local and foreign liquor without a license, according to reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror.

The Chinese-run ‘Silk’ had been issued with a license by the Excise Department in 2016 in violation of a gazette that prohibits liquor sales within 500 metres from a school or a religious place.

Reports say the karaoke bar is to be given a liquor license this year.

Parents of the college’s students have written to the president against this, but they say they are yet to receive a response.
