Thirteen students including a female undergraduate have been arrested a short while ago for participating a protest violating the Court order issued by the Fort Magistrate on Saturday, Police said.

The students attached to the Medical Faculty Students’ Action Committee (MFSAC) launched a five day “Nonidana Satana” an anti SAITM protest at the Lipton Circus.

It was reported that a group of people had pelted stones at the protesters on Saturday night.

MFSAC convener Ryan Jayalath who was reported to have five arrest warrants had not participated the protest.

    These students should not be released for months . They are wasting our tax money . Most of Srilankan doctors are very selfish .

    I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THESE STUDENTS ARE HEADING. ALL OF THEM SHOULD BE SACKED FROM THE UNI

    Courts must give punishment of over three months imprisonment for contempt of court and any other grave charges so that they will be disqualified from govt service.Having been in Uni Fac in the late 50's I cannot simply imagine these being future doctors. Have we really sunk so low at this apparently educated level.

    BAIL CONDITIONS Monday, 24 July 2017 02:44 PM

    NO RELEASE OF OTHER STUDENTS ON BAIL . BAIL SHOULD ONLY BE CONSIDERED ONCE THE FUGITIVE IS ARRESTED.
