Mar 18, Colombo: The Kandy District Secretariat states that compensation will be distributed for properties damaged due to the recent violence in Kandy at 10.00 am on Monday, March 19.

Accordingly, Rs. 500,000 each will be paid to the families of the people died and Rs. 100,000 for each business or house damaged in the violence.

During a visit to Kandy last week, Prime Minister Rani Wickremesinghe instructed the officials to assess the damages to the houses, religious places and vehicles and pay compensations appropriately.
