Police fired tear gas against a group including Tri Shaw Drivers who staged a protest blocking the Colombo – Chillaw main road and the railway crossing in the Galkanda area yesterday.

However, protesters who hurled stones at the Police had dispersed only after about an hour after tear gas was fired.

The protest was launched last morning by Tri Shaw drivers and later on bus drivers and lorry drivers also joined the protest.

Meanwhile, the Negombo Police has arrested 18 persons who engaged in the protest and they will be produced before the Negombo Magistrates Court today.
