The Inter-University Students Federation (IUSF) Convener Wasantha Mudalige alleged that the police had a plan to kill him while he was in police custody.

He told a news conference that he was taken to a secluded place, blindfolded with a cloth, by the river close to the Nawagamuwa Devalaya. He revealed that one of the officers said over the phone that "Sir, we came to the place. What should we do now?"

He said, having seen a police officer stationed for the security of the Devala, he was taken back in a vehicle.

He said , according to the script, they were not to be released in this manner and said the government wanted to either kill them or imprison them for many years.

    Any response from the Police or Minister of Public Security to know full story.

    I think he was released deliberately before the election, govt knows that he will start a protest soon. This is a ploy by the govt to somehow use the situation to postpone the election.

    Super! Now contest the next presidential elections or seek asylum in another first world country!

    These are serious allegations and should be investigated thoroughly. Police has no such authority and whoever involved need to be prosecuted

    This immoral police minister and corrupt police officers will face justice when the JVP comes to power. So enjoy your freedom for it's not going to last very long.

    Wasantha should have never been allowed to go free. He caused so much criminal damage.

    S**t rolls down from top. That's what we see, a corrupt and totalitarian government using the forces to crush any resistance!

    We will see justice only when JVP comes to power in Sri-Lanka. Until that time we will have to put up with blatant violations of human rights.
