Tourists at the hotels were also attacked and money and personal items had been stolen.

A senior officer at Sigiriya Police said that the suspects responsible for the burglaries have been identified and authorities are working to arrest them.
 
The chairman of the Cultural Triangle Hotel Association Saliya Dayananda insisted that the absence of tourist police for Sigiriya is a serious problem.
