The Kaduwela Magistrate’s Court has issued an order prohibiting a procession organized by university students from entering Parliament Road.

Issuing a media release, Police Headquarters noted police had received information that students from the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) and the Inter University Bhikkhu Federation (IUBF) were due to march on Colombo today and hold a protest demonstration opposite Parliament.

The student procession commenced from Kandy a few days ago and is due to enter Colombo today (27).

After being notified of the procession by police, the Kaduwela Magistrate has issued an order prohibiting the students from proceeding beyond Polduwa Junction towards Parliament.

Police expect to hand over the court order to the student when the procession reaches Polduwa Junction later today.
