Colombo, 26 May, (Asiantribune.com):

Individuals who do not maintain the prescribed social distance, whether at queues or in buses, once the curfew is lifted, they will be arrested and prosecuted under Section 264 of the Penal Code of Sri Lanka, stated DIG Ajith Rohana.

Those who violate social distancing would be arrested and produced in the Court.

The DIG further said if convicted of such an offense, one could face up to six months in prison.

Stay Safe, Stay at Home, Stay Informed, But Don't Forget to Wash Your Hands.
