The Indian High Commission has refuted allegations of supplying water canons to Sri Lanka.

Issuing a statement in this regard, the High Commission deemed recent reports pertaining to the matter as ‘factually incorrect’, emphasising that “no water canon vehicles have been supplied by India under any of the credit lines extended by India to Sri Lanka”.

“Credit line of USD 1 billion to Sri Lanka is intended to help the people of Sri Lanka with availability of food, medicines and other essential items required by the people of Sri Lanka in the current situation”, the statement read, adding that such incorrect reports do not benefit the cooperation and efforts undertaken to address the ongoing crisis.
