Pietermaritzburg - Eleven University of KwaZulu-Natal students arrested after clashes with police will spend another three days behind bars after appearing in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate's Court on Monday. 

The students were arrested on September 22 following running battles with police during protests demanding free tertiary education.

Their bid for bail was reopened by a team of five attorneys on Monday, who each addressed the court in support of their release. 

The thrust of their renewed application was that the 11 had no knowledge of a High Court order obtained by the university which interdicted students from gathering unlawfully, and engaging in acts of public violence. 

The State is opposing bail on the basis that the 11 pose a risk to the public and will disturb public order. 

Magistrate M Boikhutso rolled the matter over until Thursday when she is expected to give a ruling.
