IGP instructs to hand over IUSF arrestees to TID over any suspicion

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) has instructed that the arrested Inter-University Students Federation (IUSF) members — its Convener Wasantha Mudalige, Convener of the Inter-University Bhikshu Federation Ven. Galwewa Siridhamma Thero and Member Hashan Gunathilake — be handed over to the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) over any suspicion of involvement in terrorism.

The IUSF activists were arrested during a protest held on August 18 and were referred to questioning under a 72 hour-detention order.

The Police have requested the Defence Minister to question the IUSF activists subjugated to detention of 90 days under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) but no approval has yet been granted in this regard.

The Peliyagoda Police have taken Mudalige, who is currently in custody, out of the station, but the whereabouts remain unknown.
