Policemen from the nearby sentry point, located at the Sambaltivu junction, inquired from them the cause for the protest. They told the Police that they were not provided with any relief by the government authorities since the tsunami hit their area on December 26 last year, sources said.

Thereafter the Police invited the leader of the protest campaign for a meeting with the relevant civil authorities to raise their grievances, sources said.
