It was reported to our news team the only public water well which feeds about 150 families in drought-hit Kalu Arachchigama in Galkiriyagama has been poisoned two days ago.

The resident monks of the Sri Bodhi Rukkaramaya of Kalu Arachchigama also consumed water drawn from this well.

Residents told our news team they observed a layer similar to oil on the surface of water and dead fish floating on the water.

The well has been temporarily closed for the public and residents have complained the incident to the Galkiriyagama police.

When contacted Police Media Spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that action will be taken against the culprits for attempted murder.

He also said the contaminated water samples will be sent to the court.
