Police fired water cannon and tear gas on the protest launched by the Inter University Students Federation against SAITM near the Presidential Secretariat this afternoon.

A march was organized by the IUSF in protest of SAITM today.

It began from the Institute of Aesthetic Studies of the Colombo University and reached Colombo Fort in the afternoon.

However, police fired water cannons and tear gas as protesters attempted to enter the Presidential Secretariat forcibly.

Meanwhile, police served a ruling issued by Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayarathna which had prevented protesters in the city.

Water cannon and tear gas were fired to disperse the crowd after they tore the court document and attempted to march forward.

Meanwhile, two protesters who received injuries during the mayhem were admitted to the Colombo national Hospital.
