Grenade attack on Jaffna Univ. hostel

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 November 2001, 04:46 GMT]
Two grenades were lobbed at the male students’ hostel of the Jaffna University Wednesday night around 9 p.m. Both grenades exploded inside the hostel compound. An undergraduate was wounded, student sources said. Windows in building and a section of the hall ceilings were shattered by the explosions. “The attack is clearly the work of the Eelam People’s Democratic Party goons. The EPDP is attacking us for opposing their terror tactics to intimidate the people in this election”, a Jaffna University Students’ Union spokesman said.

Balasingham Hall, the male students’ hostel is located close to the Jaffna University Campus in Tinnevely. The Jaffna University Students’ Union is campaigning for a free and fair poll in the peninsula.

The Union has also called on the people of Jaffna to vote for those who represent Tamil national aspirations.
