Police officers suspected of shooting Jaffna Uni students granted bail

Five police officers arrested in connection with the killing of two Jaffna university students have been granted bail.

Sri Lankan police shot dead two Tamil students from Jaffna University, 23 year old Nadarasa Kajan and 24 year old Pavunraj Sulaxan, in October 2016.

The five officers who have been in custody for eleven months in connection with the killings were granted bail by the Jaffna High Court with the conditions that they sign in with the Criminal Investigation Department in Colombo every Sunday morning.

The officers are also prohibited from leaving the country and were ordered to hand their passports in to the magistrate court’s registrar.
