The Defence Ministry has issued detention orders against Inter University Student’s Federation (IUSF) convenor Wasantha Mudalige and two other activists who were arrested last week.
Accordingly, they will be detained for 90 days for further questioning.
The IGP too had instructed the Police to investigate if the group is involved in any terrorist activities.
Wasantha Mudalige, Ven. Galwewa Siridamma Thera and Hashan Jeewantha were arrested following a protest march held in Colombo on 18 August.
