The Ruhunu University Students Union (RUSU) charged that have now begun eradicating student leaders in the university by filing bogus charges against them.
A second year student of the Ruhunu University was arrested by the police on Wednesday evening without reasonable cause, the Union added.
According to RUSU Secretary Duminda Tharaka, the arrested student – Rohan Pradeep Kumara, a student of the Management and Finance faculty was arrested for not being present at court for a case filed against him by the university administration.
Police Spokesman SP Prishantha Jayakody speaking to Daily Mirror said that if an individual has committed an unlawful act they will be arrested and it is simply not because they are university students.
