Kochi : Youths arrested for burning the Collector’s effigy in Lakshadweep to mark protest should be released immediately, the High Court ruled Tuesday.

Locking them up for 5 days in remand has been infringement on their right to freedom,  the court observed and further asked  Sub-Collector to submit report in the incident.

The court instructions came while presiding over petition on air ambulance guidance issued by the government recently.
