JU Arts Faculty students to boycott demanding Raveendran’s release

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 March 2009, 14:11 GMT]
The Arts Faculty Students Union (AFSU) in Jaffna University is to engage in a boycott of lectures from Wednesday until further notice demanding the immediate release of their lecturer Selvarajah Raveendran, the younger brother of Jaffna District Tamil National (TNA) parliamentarian, Selvarajah Kajendran, according to a report to the media by AFSU. Raveendran was abducted 24 March night by armed persons inside the high security area in Madiwela in Colombo while he was returning to the parliamentarian's residence, according to police.

“No constructive steps have been taken yet by the authorities concerned to have Raveendran released,” AFSU report said.

AFSU urged the related authorities to act urgently on this matter and said that the Arts Faculty students will boycott lectures from Wednesday.

Meanwhile, AFSU has solicited the sympathetic support of the Jaffna University Student Union (JUSU) and the students of all other faculties, AFSU representatives said.

The request has been extended officially to the above and it is hoped that there will be a favourable response, they added.

Raveendran, a lecturer in Jaffna University and the younger brother of Jaffna District Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Selvarajah Kajendran, was following a postgraduate course in Moratuwa University.
