The three suspects arrested over the shooting at the Rathupaswala people who staged a protest demanding pure drinking water have been further remanded until the 23rd of this month. The people of Rathupaswala engaged in a demonstration on August 01 in 2013 claiming that drinking water in the area had been polluted due to the release of waste from a factory. Following shooting at the protesters, three were killed and several sustained injuries. Three suspects including Army Brigadier Anura Deshapriya taken into custody and remanded over the incident, were again produced in the Gampaha Magistrate’s Court today. The Magistrate who ordered that the suspects be further remanded, adjourned further hearings until the 23rd of this month.
