Police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse protesting university students who were blocking the main parliament road.

A protest march was held as hundreds of university students attempted to march towards the Parliament, Ada Derana reporter said. The protest was commenced at the University of Kelaniya this afternoon.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate earlier this morning rejected to issue an injunction to prevent protesters from holding demonstrations near the Parliament. The police requested the injunction order following the scheduled protest by the university students.
