Following the discussion between the National Transport Commission (NTC) officials and the private bus owners regarding the revision of bus fares, the bus owners behaved violently and threatened the NTC officials with death.

The police said death threats have been made at the NTC officials following talks on the revision of bus fares.

It was reported that the bus owners had threatened to kill and verbally abused the NTC staff over the phone.

A complaint in this regard was made to the Narahenpita police by the NTC Chairman and Director General.

The Transport, Highways and Mass Media Minister Bandula Gunawardena has instructed the Ministry Secretary R.W. Pemasiri to conduct an internal investigation into this incident and take legal action against the bus owners who obstructed the duties of the Commission officials. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
