Hindus, Buddhists hold poojas at Kinniya hot springs

Both Hindus and Buddhists held religious activities near the famous Kanniya hot springs in Trincomalee yesterday.

Both the groups performed religious activities peacefully and the security in the area was tightened for the event.

Special Police teams had been deployed and anti-riot squad teams were placed in the vicinity ready to be deployed if needed.
