The Court yesterday (23) ordered the Convener of the Medical Faculty Students' Action Committee, Ryan Jayalath to be further remanded until 25 August.

Jayalath was named as a suspect in the incident where a group of protesting university students stormed the Health Ministry damaging the public property on 21 June. Later, they had surrendered to the Maligakanda Magistrate's Court on 18 August, through a lawyer.

A warrant was issued for his arrest along with four other student union members after they failed to appear in Court for a hearing on 10 August.

The Fort Magistrate's Court had previously issued arrest warrants for Jayalath and four other members for disturbing the peace. The five students are to be charged for conducting protests in a manner disruptive to the public. (M.D)
