JVP parliamentarian Sunil Handunneththi is reported to have suffered minor injuries during the skirmish at the demonstration held in Maligawatta today, MP Vijitha Herath said.

"A tear gas bullet hit his head during the police assault on us. This is a government that is frightened of the people and they use the police to suppress the voice of the people. First they murdered Roshen Chanaka, then today they murdered a fishermen in Chilaw after yesterdays protests, today they didn't let us protest peacefully, they are doing this because they are afraid of the people," he said.

The MP further went on to point out that the JVP condemns the murder of the fisherman and the attack on today's protest. "We condemn in the strongest possible terms the murder of an innocent fisherman and the police brutality used by the state on us," he said. (Hafeel Farisz)
