A tense situation was reported from the Welikada Prison this evening after clashes erupted between Prison officials and a group of female inmates, during a roof-top protest by the female inmates, injuring at least eight prison officials and three inmates, officials said.

Following the incident, the authorities had to transfer some 52 female inmates to different wards within the Prisons complex, Prisons Media Spokesperson, Thushara Upuldeniya said.

He said the riot was created by several female inmates this evening and they were pelting stones at the prison officers, forcing the authorities to use minimum force to control the situation.
