Convener of the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) Sanjeewa Bandara released on bail by the Colombo Fort magistrate’s Court today.

Sanjeewa Bandara was arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division last Wednesday (Sep. 19) for allegedly attacking police officers and vandalizing state property during a protest held on August 29.

He was ordered to be remanded till September 25 (today), after being produced before the Fort Magistrate, Kanishka Wijeratne, on Thursday.

Tear gas was fired to disperse crowds after protestors clashed with police personnel during the protest march organized by the IUSF from Fort Railway Station, over issues plaguing the education sector.

Bandara was arrested on Wednesday when he was returning home on a bus after a protest in Fort, reportedly by CCD officers in civilian clothing.
