Sri Lankan High Commissioner said it was shocking to see the brutal attack on Priyantha Diyawadana by the extremist mob.

“However, we are happy that the government of Pakistan and Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken stringent action against the culprits involved in the incident to punish them,” the Ambassador said.

He said that already a number of culprits have been rounded up and were behind the bars.
Ambassador Wijewickrama said 99 per cent of Pakistanis have expressed their condolences and sympathies with the Sri Lankan victim’s family.

“This incident will not affect bilateral ties between the two friendly countries,” he said and pointed that the relationship between the two countries dates back to the independence of Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

High Commissioner said, “We are very confident that this particular incident will be handled by the government and justice will be provided to the victim’s family and children.”
