Sri Lankan police arrest Chavakachcheri Municipal Council member doing volunteer work

Sri Lankan police officers arrested a member of the Chavakachcheri Municipal Council for an alleged curfew violation earlier this week, despite the man carrying a valid permit as he delivered supplies to under privileged families in Jaffna.

The council member was arrested alongside three other volunteers whilst delivering food in the Varani area.

The vehicle they had been travelling in was also seized by the police.
