3 suspects have been arrested by police in relation to the assault carried out on the principal of the Mawanella - Mayurapada College.
A spokesperson for the Mawanella police stated that one suspect was arrested yesterday and two suspects had turned themselves in this morning.
The suspects are scheduled to be presented to court today.
The assault on the principal took place when he had left the school for an official duty last morning and was admitted to the Mawanella base hospital for further treatment.
Police suspect that the assault was an act of vengeance for a punishment conferred on a student last morning.
However, the students of the Mawanella Mayurapada College and the parents of the students carried out a protest in front of the college condemning the assault.
