The upper landing of the President’s House is facing a risk of collapse due to sheer numbers visiting the property every day, reports say.
The Dutch era building has been damaged in the last few days, since the ‘Aragalaya’ protestors stormed the building last Saturday (09).
The protestors have also displayed a notice barring anyone from going upstairs due to this.
The double wooden staircase too, has sustained damages due to the sheer numbers at walking on it on a daily basis.
Spare parts of a Benz car parked at the venue have also been looted.
Massive crowds are still thronging to Colombo Fort to catch a glimpse of the President’s House.
