Seven persons including five monks and two women, who were remanded for acting in a violent manner outside the Homagama Magistrate’s Court on January 26, were released on bail by Homagama Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake today.
They were release on sureties of Rs. 100,000 each.

Magistrate ordered the Homagama Police on January 27 to arrest all individuals who behaved in the violent manner on charges of contempt of court.(Muditha Dayananda)
