“These are fake and blatantly false reports, devoid of any truth or substance. High Commission strongly denies them,” it said.

Sri Lanka has been engulfed in a spiral of political violence since yesterday, after pro-government mobs clashed with the anti-government protesters in Colombo. The violence refused to die down despite the resignation of Mahinda Rajapaksa as Prime Minister, with a large mob attacking his Temple Trees home and also burning down a house of the prime minister in another town. 

On Tuesday protesters gathered outside the Trincomalee Naval Base amid reports that Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members are gathered there, and that they may flee the country using the sea route.
