An armed group believed to be associated with a Deputy Minister attacked the MTV/MBC office at Braybrooke Place a short while ago severely damaging the place, an MBC official told to the news reporters.
The staff of the Sirasa office also had retaliated with using the stones used by the mob forcing the attackers to withdraw. However they continued the attack from outside the building until the police arrived. Police have arrested a dozen of persons involved in the attack.
Several employees and vehicles were also damaged in the attack. Members of the Special Task Force and the police have been deployed outside the premises.
