Military Spokesperson Brig. Sumith Atapattu says 12 security forces personnel were among the injured when a private bus caught fire in Kahagolla, Diyathalawa.

The Military Spokesperson said of the injured 7 were Army personnel and 5 were Air Force personnel.

It was revealed that the fire erupted following an explosion.

However, the Military Spokesperson emphasized it was not an act of terror.

The regular bus which was plying from Jaffna to Diyathalawa had stalled in Bandarawela due to mechanical fault and then the passengers had been transferred to the bus, which caught fire.

The bus was completely gutted due to the fire.

The 19 injured persons were admitted to Diyathalawa Hospital.
