The High Level Road has been blocked due to a demonstration raised by students of the Sri Jayawardenapura University, in the continuation of protests against the government.
There is a heavy traffic congestion in the area at present, reports said.
The protesters claim that all parties, including the general public and university students, have severely been affected due to the current situation of the country.
The anti-government protests fanning flames across the island are seemingly growing and the assault on those who had participated in the demonstrations in Mirihana two nights ago has severely been criticised.
Our correspondents said that security has been tightened for the Madiwela MP quarters and that additional security has been deployed following reports on future protests being organised at the site.
