Nine police officers including DIG Ravi Wijeyagunawardena, two ASP and a OIC were injured during the clash which took place in Katunayake with FTZ workers a short while ago.

The injured policemen are receiving treatment at the Negombo General Hospital, police media spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said.

Fifteen FTZ workers who were injured during the clash with the police are also receiving treatment at the Negombo Hospital.

The police had reportedly used teargas to disperse protesters in Katunayake who were against the proposed private sector pension scheme. A tense situation erupted between the police and protesters as the protesters started throwing stones at the police.

The Katunayake police under the directions of Negombo SSP Chandana Galappaththi are investigating into the clash. (Supun Dias)

    Inappropriate time to release such issues when an important conference is just about to start.

    please implement the laws which were ignored for a long time. then go for new ideas like private pension schemes. sri lanka is a mess already and we need no more new troubles.
