The IGP has instructed police to hand over Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) convenor Wasantha Mudalige and two others to the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) if they are suspected to be involved in any terrorist activities.

Police Media Spokesperson SSP Nihal Thalduwa said that the police has also requested the Ministry of Defence to extend the detention order on Wasantha Mudalige, Ven. Galwewa Siridhamma Thera and Hashantha Jeevantha Gunathilake.

The trio were arrested on 18 August following a protest march in Colombo.
