The poster

Police have arrested four youths who had been pasting posters for Sugath Mahadivulwewa’s stage drama ‘Sahathika Nokala Maranayak’, or ‘An Uncertified Death’.

Producer of the drama Rohan Samaradivakara told ‘Sri Lanka Mirror’ that the incident had occurred yesterday (Dec. 10).

Two of the youths arrested by Dehiwala Police were freed this morning, while two others are still in the custody of Fort Police after been beaten up severely, he said.

Police may have thought the poster, which had a line “Whoever comes to power whenever, uncertified deaths across the country”, was anti-government and arrested the four.
