May 11, Colombo: The Indian High Commission in Colombo on Tuesday said that reports of Sri Lankan lawmakers and their families fleeing to India are false.
The High Commission in a statement said it has recently noticed rumors circulating in sections of media and social media that certain political persons and their families have fled to India.
“These are fake and blatantly false reports, devoid of any truth or substance. The High Commission strongly denies them,” the High Commission said.
It has been reported that the protesters on Tuesday used vehicles to block the entrance to Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in order to prevent ruling party politicians from leaving.
