Twelve persons have been arrested for attacking a bus during a tense situation that prevailed in Hambanthota this morning.

The incident had occurred at the Bandagiriyia junction, located along the Hambantota- Tissamaharama road when a protest was staged by residents of several villages, demanding the facilitation of a drinking water supply system. The protestors accused the authorities of ignoring their grievances and the hardships they face due to scarcity of drinking water.  

The angry protestors had obstructed the road despite attempts by the Police to disperse them. This had resulted in a clash between the protesting group and the Police, during which several protestors had attacked a bus that was passing by.  

The Hambantota area HQI and three other police officers have been injured and admitted to the Hambanthota hospital, the Police media spokesman’s office said. (Sanath Gamage)
