Two Maldivian minors, who were arrested along with two Sri Lankan students after a gang fight in a school last Thursday, have been summoned to court.

Sri Lankan police had arrested the four minors after a heated brawl with a rivalling group at the famous Daybridge International School had left three of them injured, two of whom are Maldivians. One of the students was stabbed in the back with a pair of scissors.

The Maldivian Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Mohamed Hussain Shareef, confirmed that the minors have been summoned to court. He revealed that they have been released from police custody while the injured students have also been discharged from the hospital.

According to the ambassador, their court hearing is scheduled towards the end of this month.

“But there is the possibility that they will be released with a fine or under other conditions without pressing charges,” said Shareef.

Shareef had earlier stated that the police are on the search for three other students that were involved in the fight. The students from the rivalling group, which includes Maldivians, had reportedly fled the scene of the crime.
