Courts have rejected the bail application presented to court to secure the release of the 21 university students arrested by the police last Thursday (14).
Colombo Chief Magistrate Rashmi Singappuli has rejected the bail application to secure the release of the university students.
The 21 university students were arrested by the police last week after they forcibly entered the Higher Education Ministry premises.
The Cinnamon Gardens police had reportedly objected to the bail application on the grounds that inquiries against them were still pending.
Meanwhile following an initiative by the Tharunyata Hetak Organization, President Mahinda Rajapaksa decided to meet the parents of the students who have been taken into custody.
