Inter-University Students Federation (IUSF) Convener Lahiru Weerasekara was today remanded till July 15 by Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne on charges of defying a court order.

Despite an enjoining order by the Police, the IUSF had carried out a protest at Lotus Road, Colombo Fort on June 15 demanding the release of the seven students who were arrested on charges of ragging at the Kelaniya University.

However, the IUSF threatened to protest outside the universities against the remand of Lahiru Weerasekara.

On June 15, four students were hospitalized and three others including a female student were arrested during the IUSF protest. (Piyumi Fonseka, Indika Sri Aravinda)

    New found independent judiciary banning protests by citizen. I wonder under what law.

    At any cost these trouble makers living on public money should not be allowed to have their own way. The court has taken the correct course and let that be a lesson to all. In fact these university students are a law unto themselves. via DM Android App

    Don't these fellows have anything better to do than protest for every damn thing??

    They should be in lecture halls not in the streets. If they protest again send them home and give that opportunity to someone else.

    Students should be banned from public protests.

    Seems to have forgotten what did happen to the protesters under the earlier regime.

    Better to ban them for life of having higher education.

    Just like Kanhaiya Kumar being arrested in India. He will be released soon. Hope that he changes his attitude now.

    Results of 'cheap' (free) education. No value in life.
