The SLN had told the students that since the area lies within the High Security Zone (HSZ) they will not be allowed to carryout any publicity work.

Members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) and parliamentarians S Gajendran and M Sivanesan came to the scene and had discussions with the SLN officers.

The SLN did not agree to admit the students.
