11 TPPs moved to Jaffna Prison following 2 prisoners shot dead in unrest in Anyradhapura prison 

11 Tamil Political Prisoners hitherto interred with condemned prisoners in Anuradhapura Prison have been moved under heavy security to Jaffna Prison yesterday night.

Following a rumour of corona infection in the Anuradhapura Prison  some prisoners had attempted to burn down the main gate and in the ensuing melee two prisoners were shot dead and more than 7 injured.

Following the said unrest several requests were made to transfer the TPPs to either Jaffna or Colombo Prisons.

On the basis of these requests, the 11 TPPs have been transferred to Jaffna Prison yesterday.
