The students, who were arrested in connection with the strike at St. Leos College Kyegobe, have been released on Bond.
Joseph Ssentamu Bitali, the criminal investigations officer, says the students were released because of the mounting pressure from the parents. Several parents stormed the police station on Tuesday demanding that their children be released from the overcrowded police cells.
The CID officer says that the students were bonded on condition that they continue reporting to police as investigations continue.
25 students were arrested on Monday and detained at Fort-Portal Police station in connection with their alleged involvement in masterminding the strike at St-Leos.
Ivans Ottigo, the school headmaster says the students were arrested on Monday, shortly after they reported back to school, following a two weeks suspension.
On June 8th, the students went on rampage and destroyed school property, in protest against the administrations failure to buy a school bus.
The students demanded to know why the school bus has failed to buy the bus despite the fact that the students were asked to contribute 30,000 shillings each towards its purchase.
The students then poured their wrath on Francis Asiimwe, the l director of studies who they accused of forcing them to go for night preps. They smashed his vehicle and burnt down his banana plantation and vandalized his house.
An emergency meeting by the school's board of governors was convened during which the board members resolved to close the school and send the students home to pave way for investigations.
Kwanya Wilson, the western regional police commander, says preliminary investigations show that the ringleaders attacked some students and forced them to remove their t-shirts after which they were burnt.
The T-shirts with students names were introduced recently as a way of curbing indiscipline at the school.
