Man protests in Deraniyagala over toilet pit odour from next door

A man has protested on the roof of the public lavatory at Deraniyagala town, demanding the authorities to give a solution to the odour coming from a damaged toilet pit at his neighbouring house.
The man - Dinesh Kumara, has claimed that he and his family have faced severe hardship and embarrassment due to the odour coming from this toilet pit for over the last two years.
He said despite repeated requests to the authorities in the area, officials did not pay attention to solve this problem.
Kumara ended his protest after police intervened.
Deraniyagala Plice OIC Wasantha Alahakoon convened the owner of the neighbouring house and made a written promise that he would install an additional sewerage tank and prevent the odour.
