July 01, Colombo: Police beefed up security in the Kalmunai area of Sri Lanka's Eastern Province due to a clash between two Muslim sects.

The Police have recorded statements from eight persons regarding the incident.

The prayer center reportedly belonged to Sri Lanka Thawheed Jamaath (SLTJ) and police say it is located in state land.
