Wed, Dec 4, 2019, 09:15 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 04, Colombo: Nuwara Eliya District Secretary Rohana Pushpakumara says that steps have been taken to cancel the license issued to the quarry which is said to have caused the landslide in the Malapattawa area in Walapane.

The Secretary was addressing the people who were engaged in a Sathyagraha on the Kandy Walapane Kandy main road yesterday demanding the revocation of the permit issued to the Walapane Malapattawa quarry.

According to the official, troops of the 3rd Sinha Regiment of the Sri Lanka Army in Nuwara Eliya are engaged in a cumbersome operation for three days in search of the body of the missing student Kalana Pathum.

The bodies of his parents and sister have been recovered the day after their house was buried in the landslide on 30th November.
