Parents of Peradeniya undergraduate Rasiah Dwaraka, who is now under detention in the Terrorist Investigation Department (TID), handed over a petition Tuesday afternoon to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) requesting to take steps to obtain Dwaraka's release, sources in Colombo said. Earlier her parents visited their daughter in the TID. Inter University Students Association (IUSA) led by its organizer Udul Premaratne facilitated the visit and handing over of petition. Dwaraka was taken into custody for accepting a medal from LTTE leader Pirapaharan for her academic performance.

Dwaraka's parents later met the media said her daughter had been arrested on allegation she had been involved with LTTE activities, and that she was not being treated well after her arrest by the TID while in detention.

They expressed fear that the continuous ill-treatment in detention would lead to permanent injury or death, and they are appealing to human right authorities to rescue her daughter from the present plight.

The parents further said their daughter was born in Kilinochchi and studied in Kilinochchi. LTTE leader Mr.V.Pirapaharan commended her success in education by handing over medal and certificate to her.

Parents questioned whether it was an offence to accept medal and certificate from the Leader of the LTTE for her success in education.
