Sarath Fonseka Blames Both Army And Police Over Biker Squad Incident At Parliament Protest

MP and former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka blamed both the Army and the Department of Police over the “biker squad” incident which took place during a protest near Parliament yesterday.

Fonseka said he did not accept the conduct of the police officer who mishandled the incident.

“Even if the Army assaulted the police officers, I would have said the same thing,” he added.

At the same time, Fonseka said the Army biker squad should not have gone near the protestors.

“What if someone grabs a weapon and commits a criminal act?” He asked.
