Jaffna Magistrate court issued an order yesterday extending the remand order of the 5 suspect police Officers charged with killing 2 University students by firing on them, to 30th.
Two students of the Jaffna University were shot dead near Kulappiddy Junction in last October.
President’s Counsel M.A.Sumanthiran appeared on behalf of the affected and pointed out that the SSP, Mulaitheevu was alleged to attempt to divert the passage of the justice and he had not present himself to court as ordered. The Counsel was asked take further action.
Meanwhile an appeal has been filed in the appeal court to transfer this case to Colombo as the accused are unable to find AsAL to appear on behalf of them. PC, Sumanthiran will appear on behalf of the affected when this appeal trial will be taken up in the appeal court, it is learnt.
