The fast carried out by 129 suspects arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act is still in effect at 4 Prisons.
Prisons Commissioner General Rohana Pushpakumara stated that 4 inmates who were fasting at the Welikada Prison have been transferred to hospital for medical treatment.
Although the protesting inmates at Welikada, Anuradhapura, Bogambara and Batticaloa had been explained regarding the future course of action they are continuing with the fast.
A harthal also took place last week demanding a common amnesty for the suspects in prison.
However, recently 31 suspects arrested with ties to the LTTE were released on bail.
