Rajarata undergrads appeal to HC

2014 Feb 17

Rajarata University Undergraduates of the Students’ Council will file an appeal before Anuradhpaura High Court today against the Magistrate Court’s order preventing them from staging a satyagraha and to seek the release of their colleagues arrested by the Mihintale police on Feb. 13.

A delegation of the Students’ Council met legal experts to draft the petition yesterday evening.

The satyagraha mounted by the undergraduates of the Rajarata University asking the authorities to revoke the suspension of 27 students of the university enters the 70th day today (17).

On Feb 13, the Mihintale Police, acting on a court order, dispersed the students and dismantled a stage put up by the protesters. Eight undergraduates were taken into custody on that day, our news sources said.
