Five suspects who were arrested in connection with the unrest that erupted in Talawakele have been remanded until February 16.

The order was issued after the suspects were produced before the Nuwara Eliya Magistrate’s Court.

Residents of Talawakele engaged in a protest after a youth in the area jumped to his death – into the Upper Kotmale Reservoir – in a bid to evade the police who were following him.

The protestors were on the railway line hampering train travel. A  tense situation arose after  police attempted to disperse the crowd.

The suspects were arrested on Thursday, following investigations.
