The hunger strike initiated  by Theripehe Thero at the Katunayake International Airport this morning, demanding the arrest of the Brigadier who allegedly ordered the shooting at Rathupaswala has been halted a short while ago.

The Thero has withdrawn the fasting after a group of government representatives pledged the Thero to mete out justice before law.

Brigadier Deshapriya Gunawardana who was allegedly ordered to shoot at people during Rathupaswala protest, was appointed as a security advisor attached to the Sri Lankan Embassy in Turkey by the Rajapaksa government.

The chief incumbent of Gal Oluwa Sri Sambuddha Jayanthi Temple Venerable Theripehe Siridamma Thero started the fast before the Buddha statue placed in front of the entrance terminal of the Katunayake International Airport this morning.

The Thero started the fast after he received information that Brigadier Gunawardana is returning to the island today.
