Sources say security beefed in Colombo to prevent IUSF threat

Highly placed security sources told Daily Mirror that security has been beefed up in Colombo and its surrounding areas following an intelligence report that IUSF students were planning to march into the city in their hundreds over the weekend to take over key government institutions and launch a fresh ’Aragalaya’ against the government.

Following intelligence information received later this week, security was heightened outside the Colombo University premises and several other areas in the city to prevent such a threat.

Police said that by Saturday evening police checkpoints and barricades had also been put up in the entry points into Colombo as security was heightened. (JAMILA HUSAIN)
