Nine persons including a woman have been arrested in connection with an incident that took place near a filling station in Athurugiriya, police said.

They said a group of people who were waiting in a queue to get fuel behaved in a riotous manner demanding for fuel albeit the petrol shed had run out of fuel.

Six policemen were injured in the incident and were admitted to the Homagama Hospital for treatment.

The arrested are to be produced before the Kaduwela Magistrate today, the police said. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    This could all be prevented if the criminal dictator Gota disappears along with all his goons and henchmen.

    These people who behave like this comes from a background which didn't even have a push bike. Thanks to cheap politics fuelled by endless subsidies they now act as if they were born with vehicles.

    What we see are just the 'trailers' of the action movies to come soon. It will be bullets, tear gas and water cannon against poles, sticks, bricks, stones and possibly shit.

    Did not see any cops getting beaten. It was the thugs in Kakhi uniform who did all the beating up. Corrupt to the core.
