Dhaniz Ali, the person who forcibly entered Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation and attempted to disrupt telecasts on July 13, has been arrested.
He was taken into custody while trying to leave for Dubai on a flight from the Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake.
On July 13, a group of protesters including Dhaniz Alia forced their way into the state-owned media institute, demanding that only anti-government protests-related news be broadcast thereafter.
Two of the protesters then appeared on a live interview, after which the channel suspended its live and recorded telecasts.
The police later initiated investigations into the incident to identify the protesters in question.
