The three youths who were arrested over the semi-nude photos they had taken atop Pidurangala rock and posted them on social media were released yesterday.

The trio was ordered to be released by Magistrate Kosala Bandara Ilangasinghe when the three pleaded guilty to the charge.

The school student among the arrested was released on advice while the other two youths were released following a fine of Rs.1500 each.

The police took the three students under custody and charged them following a formal complaint by Ven. Dr. Danegama Ananda Thera of the Pidurangala Raja Maha Vihara.

The legal representatives of the accused pointed out that the three accused pleaded guilty because the youths would have been kept in remand until other legal complexities get solved.

The three arrested are residents of Galewela.
