Convener of the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) Sanjeewa Bandara has been released on bail by the Colombo Fort Magistrate a short while ago.
Meanwhile, the Colombo Crime Division (CCD), which is conducting investigations into the incident, had requested the Magistrate to release the suspect on three main conditions including that of restricting all students’ protest to Colombo’s Hyde Park Corner.
The Magistrate rejected the request saying he has no authority to issue such an order on this matter.
