Tamil Students Union (TSU) Jaffna District, temporarily suspended Wednesday the two weeks boycott launched in protest against the abduction of four high school students, in response to requests made by the Jaffna University students, educationists, high officials and pledges made by the President and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Jaffna Commander.

"We have called off the boycott temporarily in response to the requests made by interested sections of the society and the pledges made by persons in responsible positions. If the pledges are not carried out soon, we will resume our boycott, TSU media release Wednesday said.

"We share the grief of the parents of the four students abducted and we will resume our struggle to free them if they are not released soon," the media release added.

TSU expressed its gratitude for the care and interest shown by the media and the journalists in Jaffna peninsula.

We hope and expect that the support of all who stood by us will be afforded in our future struggles too, the TSU media release said.
