[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 July 1999, 09:00 GMT]
Two students were arrested by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) at Murakoddanchchenai, 40 km. north of Batticaloa on Monday, June 28, according to officials of the government funded Human Rights Commission.

The students, Manikkavel Vijayadharshan of Chenkalady Maha Vidyalayam and Kalimuthu Ranjithakumar were arrested by the SLA and are now being detained at its 23-3 Brigade headquarters in Batticaloa the sources said.

Ranjithkumar was arrested when he tried to enter a closed road behind the Murakkattanchenai Army camp, while another youth who was with him ran away, they said.

When the soldiers questioned Ranjithkumar, he had told them that they came on a bicycle borrowed from Vijayadharshan. This led to the arrest of Vijayadharshan, they added.

The arrest warrant for the two students were subsequently issued by officers from the Murakoddanchchenai SLA camp.

The two students are still being questioned, the sources added.
