Jaffna Undergrads condemn killling of Student leader

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 January 2008, 09:18 GMT]
Jaffna District Tamil Students’ Union (JDTSU), in a press release issued Friday, strongly condemned the killing of Panchadcharam Kunenthiran, 22, who was shot dead inside the Jaffna Campus premises, and praised him for his efforts to safeguard the interests of Jaffna district students. The youth, the former president of Jaffna District Students Union, had gone to Jaffna University campus to meet his friends and was gunned down in day light inside the campus by two men in civil clothes on a motor bicycle amid tight security around the campus with several Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops posted in sentries posts near the campus, sources in Jaffna said.

Kunenthiran was a native of Nainaatheevu, an islet of Jaffna and a close friend of Sahathevan Deluxshan, journalist and student of Jaffna University Media Research and Training Centre, who was shot dead 1 August 2007 by unknown gunmen.

Kunenthiran had also strived to improve the education and rehabilitation of the Tsunami affected students in Jaffna district.

Many civil organizations in Jaffna peninsula condemned the killing of Kunenthiran.

Kunenthiran while he was a student at Jaffna Hindu College, had been an activist fighting for the rights of the students. He remained a sincere student activist to the very the end of his life, the JDSTU press release said.

Kunenthiran’s body was handed over to his family members on the instructions of the Jaffna Magistrate Friday.
