The three youths who were charged for posing half naked for photographs on the historical Pidurangala Rock were remanded until October 3.

They were produced before Dambulla Magistrate, Kosala Bandara this morning.

Police arrested them from Galewela yesterday for publishing obscene photographs on the Internet and committing an offence in a place of archaeological value, which could also lead to religious provocation.

The youths have confessed to the police that they imitated similar scenes they found on the Internet.

The lawyer appearing for them told the court that his clients have committed the offence due to ignorance.
