Sun, Nov 11, 2012, 09:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 11, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court has granted bail to a Marxist party activist arrested by the police yesterday following a clash between the two factions of the party.

Boralesgamuwa Police Saturday arrested Udul Premaratne, the former convener of the Inter-University Students' Federation and a politburo member of the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP), a splinter group of Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) following a clash between the activists of FSP and JVP.

A clash had broken out at Pepiliyana junction in the outskirts of Colombo as a group of FSP activists were pasting propaganda posters for the party commemoration of the 'November Heroes' which honors the assassinated JVP leader and the members killed in the 1989 insurrection.

The Gangodawila Magistrate enlarged Premaratne who was charged with assault on cash bail amounting to Rs. 100,000 after he was produced in courts today.

Meanwhile during a media briefing today the FSP has accused the JVP of assaulting 23 of their members.
