The government has decided to ban the use of social media platforms in the country with immediate effect.
The decision was taken after multiple clashes were reported in the country yesterday.
The government on several previous occasions restricted the use of Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber and Instagram in order to curtail the circulation of misinformation.
A Facebook post led to the unrest reported in the Chilaw town last morning.
Meanwhile, several unruly incidents were reported in Kuliyapitiya, Bingiriya and Dummalasuriya last night.
Accordingly Police curfew was imposed to respective areas in a bid to defuse the situation.
