Awarrant had been issued for their arrest on the basis that they were not in court when the case filed against them on charges of staging a protest outside the University Grants Commission and damaging the office building on October 6, 2015 was taken up for hearing.

The damage to the building was estimated at Rs. 284,000. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    PROPERTY DAMAGE SHOULD BE JAILED. WHO TAKES THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS IS GUILTY . THE LAW SHOULD BE APPLIED TO EACH AND EVERY CITIZEN IN UNBIASED TERMS. IF A COMMON MAN HAS DONE THIS HE WILL BE DEFINITELY PUT INTO PRISON !!!!!! THIS IS WHY WE ARE HAVING HUGE PROBLEMS IN SRI LANKA. JUSTICE SHOULD PREVAIL FOR EACH AND EVERY CITIZEN DESPITE RACE , RELIGION OR CREED !!!!!!
