They were wanted for illegally congregating in front of the Colombo police headquarters, damaging public property, and interfering with police officers’ performance of their responsibilities during the demonstration.
They turned themselves in to the Maradana Police and were then taken into custody. The Fort Magistrate’s Court remanded them in custody until today.
They were today, however, freed on personal bail by the Fort Magistrate’s Court.
