2ND LEAD (CORRECTION)

Jaffna VC appeals to SLA to release arrested undergrad

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 January 2008, 14:18 GMT]
The newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of Jaffna University, Prof. N. Shanmugalingan, made urgent request to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Jaffna to immediately release Balasubramaniam Mayooran, the final year Science faculty student arrested at his home Thursday in a SLA cordon and search operation, administrations officials of Jaffna campus said. Jaffna University Student Union (JUSU), Science Faculty Student Union and other similar organizations also have appealed to the SLA in Jaffna urging the immediate release of Mayooran, according to student leaders.

The SLA had not informed the arrest of the undergraduate to Jaffna University authorities.

26- year-old Mayooran teaches in a private education centre during spare time to support his family which depends on his income, the Student Unions had pointed out in their appeal to the SLA in Jaffna.

The SLA authorities, however, have not responded to the requests made by the University authorities and students until Monday, according to student leaders.
