The boycott campaign launched by the students of Chelvanayapuram Tamil Maha Vidyalayam on Friday has been extended to all schools in the Trincomalee town from Tuesday.

The Police arrested this student on Thursday morning at the 3rd Mile Post Police sentry. The student's parents live in the refugee camp maintained by the UNHCR at Alles Garden in Uppuveli area.
