Colombo, May 10: The High Commission of India in Sri Lanka has denied that certain persons and their families have fled to India in the aftermath of the disturbances in the island nation.
The High Commission said in a press release that it has “recently noticed rumours circulating in sections of media and social media, that certain political persons and their families have fled to India.
