Security beefed up at SLRC, ITN


A large number of Army and Air Force personnel were deployed to the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) and the Independent Television Network (ITN), following suspicion that groups of anti-government protesters would occupy those institutions.

Suspicion had arisen that there was a possibility that the protesters would occupy the SLRC and ITN premises following the resignation of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today (13).

Therefore, as a precautionary measure, to ensure the security of the SLRC and the ITN, additional security had been provided to protect those media institutions.
