June 14, Colombo: Vice Chancellor of Sri Lanka’s University of Sri Jayewardenepura has handed over four students of the University to Mirihana police Monday for allegedly ragging freshmen students.
The students in the police custody were presented at the courts today reportedly on charges of conspiring against the state.
The Sri Jayewardenepura University Students’ Union convener, Ven Kamburugamuwe Gnanissara Thero has told the local media that one of the students has been released on bail and the other three are still being questioned by the police.
The Mirihana police have said the students were under investigation following the complaint by the Vice Chancellor.
The Vice Chancellor last week suspended 20 female students of the University for organizing a protest at the University premises.
The latest suspension of 20 female students has now increased the total number of students suspended from the Sri Jayewardenepura University to 50.
