Attempt to overthrow SL govt?

Colombo, Sep 30 (UNI) Police in Sri Lanka have launched extensive investigations into the involvement of some politicians who allegedly encouraged some protesters to oust the government by occupying Parliament and preventing a vote to elect a new President in July, a newspaper reported on Friday.
Highly placed sources told the Daily Mirror that these politicians had even brokered talks with the parties involved and that investigations were being carried out into their actions.
The Mirror said it learned that despite reports that last week’s gazette declaring high-security zones in Colombo will be reversed, the government will brief the Supreme Court in the coming days why the security zones are required and why the sites listed need to be protected.
