EUSL suspends educational activities

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 August 2008, 09:59 GMT]
Eastern University Vice-chancellor Dr. V. Pathmanathan on Friday suspended all educational activities temporarily and made arrangements to send the Sinhalese students in the university safely to Polonnaruwa district first and from there to their homes, on instructions from the University Grant Commission (UGC), the VC said. The UGC has taken this decision after consulting the local heads of the government armed forces after a Sinhalese student was shot and killed Thursday by unidentified armed men.

The VC said that transport facilities have been organized for more than 180 students to be sent to their home towns.

A final-year student from Kurunegala, studying at the Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL) at Vanthaa'rumoolai was shot and killed by unknown armed men Thursday around 9:15 p.m.

Ea’raavoor police who arrested four persons including a university student will be releasing them after interrogation.

The exact cause behind the slaying of the Sinhalese student is not known and there have been no threats or intimidation to any of the students, the VC said.

On being asked whether the killing was due to ragging in the university, Dr. Pathmanathan said that though he had heard about the ragging he had not received any written complaints on it.
