Kandy Chief Magistrate Lalith Ekanayake, releasing the four Final Year undergraduates who were in remand for nearly three months, said that, if the bail conditions set out are not adhered to, their bail would be cancelled.
The release took place from the original Court where the ' B' report was filed by Peradeniya Police, with regard to an incident that took place on July 12, 2010, following the arrival of the Minister of Higher Education at the Peradeniya Campus.
On a joint application lodged by the Defence Counsel Sudath Karavita with State Counsel Prabodhani Munasinghe, Kandy High Court Judge Preethi Padman Surasena granted bail on Wednesday to the four undergraduates.
The Chief Magistrate, in releasing the undergraduates told them that they have been advised earlier, as to how they should behave on the campus and continue their studies. He further ordered the four undergraduates to report to Peradeniya Police every last Sunday of the month, that should they wish to leave the country, they should inform Court, that they should not interfere with the witnesses, that they should not be involved in any anti-student behaviour, and should continue with their studies. He further told the suspect students that, if they violate any of these conditions, bail would be cancelled.
