The protest staged by some female inmates on the rooftop of the prison is continuing for the second day, yesterday, Prison sources said. 

 

The sources said the protest had obstructed inmates being produced in courts. Police personnel have been deployed in the vicinity of the Welikada prison.  The inmates began the protest on Monday to highlight the long delays in concluding court cases.
