Protests against defacing of Sri Pada name board

A heated situation was created yesterday when estate employees and residents in Nallathanni protested against the defacing of the English and Tamil language names on the name board of the Sri Padasthanaya at Adam's Peak, on Tuesday.

The protesters demanded that the authorities punish those responsible for the crime. Superintendent of Police (SP) Ravindra Ambepitiya, who had arrived at the site with police officers, held a discussion with the protesters.

The SP said that an investigation has been initiated into the issue, and that CCTV camera footage in the area would be examined for the purpose.
