Nine people including seven women were arrested while selling flowers illegally along the pavement near the Kalutara Bodhiya today, Police said.

They said separate places had been assigned for flower stalls and those engaged in selling flowers out side were arrested to avoid the inconveniences to devotees.  

Meanwhile the flower sellers said they had been selling flowers in the area for several years and it was how they made a living. (Sarath Siriwardana)
