The Balangoda Magistrate Court has rejected the request the police had made for removing the Sabaragamuwa university students engaged in a satyagraha on a trellis in the Balangoda - Pambahinna junction.
While the police requested Magistrate G. L. Kannangara for the removal of a group of university students occupying a hostel, this request too was rejected.
It marks the 49th day today since the students launched a satyagraha at the Pambahinna junction over several demands including the removal of the ban imposed on university student unions.
While a certain gang set fire to the students satyagraha trellis and destroyed it on 10th this month, subsequently these students reconstructed a satyagraha trellis on Sunday.
Meanwhile the University Vice Chancellor along with the Teachers’ union and the students attempted to resolve the situation that has cropped up at the Sabaragamuwa university
