Police have arrested six university students while they were putting up posters calling for the arrest of police officials involved in the death of Ruhunu university student Susantha Aruna Bandara.
Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) Convener Udul Premaratne said these students were arrested last night in Nugegoda while they were putting up these posters and are currently in remand custody.
Among the arrested are two Sri Jayawardenepura University students by the Kirulapone police and four students of the Indigenous Medical Faculty of the Colombo University by the Welikada police.
Premaratne observed that the police had also removed cut outs placed at the Kelaniya, Sri Jayawardenepura and the Indigenous Medical Faculty of the Colombo University.
He added that the IUSF will file a case at the Supreme court within this week against the violation of freedom of expression.
