By Chitra Weerarathne

Student groups, of three universities, who had filed Writ Application against the submission of resignations letters by Heads of the University Departments, yesterday withdrew their Applications in view of the settlement of the issue in question.

The students had complained that their academic studies were disrupted, due to the submission of resignations by Heads of Departments and the acceptance of the same by the Chancellors of the Universities and the University Grants Commission. Yesterday, Faiz Mustapha PC who appeared for the petitioner students said that the issue in question was settled and the petitioners need not pursue the petitions.

These student groups were from Wayamba, Ruhuna and Sri Jayawardenepura Universities.

The Bench comprised Justices Sriskandarajah (President, Court of Appeal) and Nalin Perera.
