IGP Submits Report To Police Commission On Clash With Anti-SAITM Protestors

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara today submitted a report on the clash that took place between Police Special Task Force (STF) at the Health Ministry premises on June 21 to the Police Commission.

The Police Commission had called for a report on the incident that saw local university students storm the Health Ministry premises agitating for a meeting with Health Minister Rajitha Seneratne – the ensuing scuffle saw 95 students hospitalised.

The local university students were protesting against the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM), which, despite solution from the government, they insist is a ‘hora upadee kade’ and must be shut down.
