    Were they arrested as they were seen in the vicinity for a coverup or does the Police have evidence.

    Investigation must commence questioning the SSP who caused the ugly situation by chasing and assaulting Sirasa Staff

    Not protestors but by goons engaged by the Government of Gota to discredit the boys at Aragalaya. Truth will prevail

    How stupid! Probably the innocent Protesters have been arrested. They did nothing to the Presidential Palace, they broke in and had only a jolly good time, How did they manage to cut off the lights down 5th Lane? Why was the Sirasa cameraman assaulted and 4 others and packed off to hospital? was it to prevent the actual perpetrators from being filmed. They did not assault Sirasa the cameraman at the Presidential House nor at the Parliament. Why did they assault him at Ranil's place? Who is the actual perpetrator? Surely not the innocent, unarmed protestors, who would not have had a match stick to torch Ranil's house. They would have had to cans of petrol to torch his house. What a disgusting Act. This sort of act can only be cooked by the Rajapakses!
