 Heavy traffic is reported around the roads leading upto Lipton circus.

Seven students have been taken into custody by the Cinnamon gardens Police, and students are currently gathered outside the Police station in order to hold discussion with the Police.

Meanwhile Police media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that five students were arrested by the Police.

“The Police are currently recording statements from them. The decision to produce them in courts would be taken after considering the facts in their statements” he said.(ISA)

Education has become a valueless thing as it cost nothing to the recipiants(stud ents/parents) resulting in student hooliganism. So charge money and the recipiants of education will not skip a single lesson(as they are paying for the lessons

''Tharunyata heta'', only for the Rajapakse sons? All citizens should have been on the street demanding that 6% is invested in OUR future, in OUR children, and OUR nation, and demand that it not be siphoned off to fill the coffers of the MR family and their supporters.
