Oct 24, Colombo: Sri Lanka's police have arrested four people suspected of assaulting the principal and several teachers of a leading school in a suburb of the Sri Lankan capital city.

Police Media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said the Kottawa Police have arrested four people suspected of attacking four members of the teaching staff of Dharmapala Vidyaalaya in Kottawa.

Besides the Principal, the suspects have assaulted the Vice Principal and two teachers. All victims have been admitted to the hospital and they are still receiving treatment, SSP Rohana said.

All the attackers are said to be old boys of the school. Reportedly a verbal dispute over shifting a Grade 3 class to a different location has escalated into the assault on the teaching staff.

The Police Spokesman said the suspects will be produced at the Homagama Magistrate’s Court today.
