The Deputy Defence Minister of Sri Lanka Ruwan Wijewardene has said that India has been “very helpful” in the investigation of the deadly terror attack that killed around 359 people, WION has reported.

On the question of what help India has provided to the island nation, the minister said, “Indian government has been very helpful. From the beginning, they have given us the assistance we have been wanting to do the investigation we want. They are giving information. They have been very helpful. And as always we look to our neighbour when a crisis happens in our country,”
