JU students boycott lectures following death threat to fellow students by SLA

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 November 2009, 08:59 GMT]
The students of the Art Faculty of Jaffna University abstained from attending lectures Monday morning following death threats to four of their fellow students from Vadamaraadchi by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Intelligence Unit officers who had taken them away from their houses for interrogation to an SLA camp and assaulted them besides issuing death threats, Jaffna University Student Union (JUSU) representatives said. The students have informed the Vice-chancellor that the entire student community of Jaffna University will boycott lectures from Tuesday if immediate action is not taken to ensure the safety of the four students threatened to death by the SLA, they further said.

The SLA officers had gone to the houses of the four students in Vadamaraadchi and taken them to their camps where they were assaulted and threatened to death, the sources further said.

The art faculty students stood in front of the administration block and chanted slogans urging the administration to take action to stop the interference of the SLA in the lives of Jaffna University students. Students from other faculties too joined the demonstrating students.

JUSU has written to the VC of Jaffna University requesting immediate action on the incident which threatens the lives of the University students.
