Colombo: Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa, resigned from his port as his loyalists were seen on a rampage on Monday. Over 100 anti-government protesters in Colombo were injured. The clashes killed a ruling party Parliamentarian while several were hospitalised.

Member of Parliament Amarakeerthi Athukorala opened fire and critically injured two people who blocked his car in Nittambuwa. According to the officers, he was later found dead after an effort to take refuge in a building close to the spot.

Rajapaksa, 76, had sent his resignation letter to his younger brother and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. This paved the way for a “new unity government”. “I am resigning with immediate effect so that you will be able to appoint an all-party government to guide the country out of the current economic crisis,” the Prime Minister was quoted as saying in the resignation letter by news agency AFP.
