A group of prisoners housed at the Welikada prison are staging a protest on top of the prison roof demanding bail, a spokesman at the prisons department told Daily Mirror online.

At least 15 prisoners who are in remand over drug related crimes are on the roof of a part of the prison demanding bail, the prison spokesman added.

The prisoners later called off the protest after obtaining assurances from the prison authorities.
