‘Ratta’ and Lahiru Weerasekara surrender to police


Social activist and Sri Lankan YouTuber Rathindu Senaratne alias ‘Ratta’ and national organizer of ‘Youth for Change’ Lahiru Weerasekara along with five others have surrendered to the Maradana Police today (22).

They were wanted over the unrest in early June where two separate protests staged in front of the Education Ministry in Thalangama and the Police Headquarters in Colombo- Fort took a violent turn.

However, student union leader Wasantha Mudalige and Venerable Galwewa Siridhamma Thera who were also involved in the incident have not surrendered to the police.

Jagath Manuwarna, Dhammika Munasinghe, Rathkarawwe Jinaratana Thera, Eranga Gunasekera and Jehan Appuhamy are amongst the group.
