Private bus drivers operating on the Colombo- Chilaw bus route have resorted to a strike action since this morning (27), President of the Lanka Private Bus Owners Association Gemunu Wijerathne said.

The strike action has been taken urging the immediate release of a  bus driver who was arrested over an assault on a bus driver and two other members attached to the association.

It was reported that the bus driver known as “Hanuma” had allegedly assaulted a driver of another bus over a personal dispute and the members were arrested for obstructing policemen while negotiating his release.
