Request to bar teachers’ protest in A’pura turned down

Anuradhapura Chief Magistrate and Additional District Judge Janaka Prasanna Samarasinghe on Wednesday turned down a request by the Police to issue an order barring the protest in Anuradhapura by the teachers and principals demanding the Government to remove their salary anomalies.

Police said that the protest is causing inconvenience to the public and hampering their day-today lives. Anuradhapura Police sought a court order through a B report on the directive of Anuradhapura SSP Keerthi Lanka Geeganage.

Over 3,000 teachers and principals were protesting at the DS Senanayake roundabout in Anuradhapura violating the quarantine rules and regulations and the public has been inconvenienced by the protest, Police said.
