A group of residents staged a protest in Piliyandala complaining that the government is not taking proper action in treating the 3 children who were injured in the recent shooting.

Our correspondent stated that the protestors started the agitation at the scene, where the shooting was carried out on Narcotic Bureau officers and later proceeded to Piliyandala town.

During the protest, mother of the injured children and several residents expressed their views to our news team.
