IUSF Convener arrested

The Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) Convener Maheel Bandara Dehideniya was arrested by the Police on charges of unruly behaviour during a protest near the Parliament roundabout yesterday.

Police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse the protesting students yesterday afternoon.

The protest was launched by the IUSF over several demands including the withdrawal of the Counter-Terrorism Act.

The protest march created a heavy traffic congestion at Parliament road and the road from Parliament roundabout towards Parliament had to be temporarily closed.
