42 arrested as Teachers & Principals protest

Police have arrested 42 persons, including 16 females, following a massive motorcade protest that took place opposite the Presidential Secretariat today (04).

10 vehicles have also been seized.

The Teachers’ and Principals’ Trade Unions reached Colombo in motorcades from Kadawatha, Pannipitiya, Welisara, Kandy and Moratuwa demanding solutions to their salary anomalies.

The protest then continued in front of the Presidential Secretariat for nearly an hour, causing a heavy traffic congestion along the Galle Road.
