Sri Lankan police earlier this week fired volleys of tear gas on the protesting crowd outside the Prime Minister's office in a bid to drive them back. While some demonstrators who appeared to be unconscious were taken to the hospital, others were seen running, trying to escape the heavy tear gas attack. 

Amid the chaos, a group of protesters helped a street dog exposed to the chemical, and a video of the same has surfaced online. Shared on Reddit, the clip showed demonstrators washing the dog's face with water.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, the anti-government demonstrators in Sri Lanka said that they are now "peacefully withdrawing" from official buildings. As per reports, around 85 people were admitted with injuries earlier this week. One man even suffocated to death after being tear-gassed at the premier's office. Moreover, police said a soldier and a constable were injured in overnight clashes with protesters outside the national parliament.

The protesters had overrun President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's palace over the weekend, forcing him to flee to the Maldives on Wednesday. Huge angry crowds converged on the official residence of Mr Rajapaksa, chanting slogans and waving the national flag before breaking through the barricades and entering the property. They were even recorded mock-playing wrestling apparently on the Prime Minister's bed.
