Vavuniya undergrads boycott in support of Jaffna students

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 December 2005, 13:02 GMT]
Undergraduates from Vavuniya campus boycotted classes Tuesday to protesting against the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) aggression including physical assault and indiscriminate firing on students at the Jaffna campus, sources in Vavuniya said. Vavuniya students accused the SLA of violating students right to non-violent protest and demanded that SLA immediately withdraw from the Jaffna Campus area.

Vavuniya students and Campus lecturers met Tuesday at the Campus Hall located in Garden street to determine the followup action to the boycott, student representatives said.

Meanwhile, SLA is rebuilding sentry points in all locations where SLA army was present before the MoU was signed. Additional police have been brought to Vavuniya to strengthen security.

Special Task Force and SLA soldiers are conducting more patrols along Vavuniya streets, residents said.
