Court allows arrested students to sit A-levels

Three students who were among 11 Tamil youths arrested by Sri Lankan police for allegedly being involved in sword attacks and gang violence, where allowed to sit their A Levels by Mallaakam Magistrate Court yesterday. 

The youths, who were arrested on August 4, will be allowed to sit the exam under the supervision of the prison officers.  

The issue of their A Levels was brought to the attention of the court by lawyers for the students, who maintained their clients were innocent and should be allowed to sit their exams. 

Locals have accused the police of arresting innocent Tamil youths as a cover-up for allowing real criminals to roam free.
