Bail denied for six ‘Awa’ gang members

The application for bail for the six notorious ‘Awa’ gang members was denied yesterday (14) by the Jaffna District Attorney S. Sadeeskaran.

Of the six suspects, three were arrested in Colombo and it is reported that a Muslim youth known as Akram is also among them.

The other three Awa gang members were arrested in Jaffna and Vavuniya.

Three Attorneys represented the six Awa gang members and they appealed to Court to consider their long period in prison and grant them bail.

However, the Judge denied them bail and ordered them to be further remanded until December 28.
