A tense at­mos­phere pre­vailed in the Jaffna cam­pus on Thurs­day night (08) due to a clash be­tween a group of stu­dents and the teach­ers.

Vice-chan­cel­lor Sri Sath­gu­nara­jah said sev­eral teach­ers and the se­cu­rity of­fi­cers had in­ter­vened to set­tle a dis­pute be­tween two groups of stu­dents in­volved in a clash. For­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the in­ci­dent would be held and dis­ci­plinary ac­tion taken against the cul­prits. The stu­dents staged a protest yes­ter­day in front of the univer­sity ac­cus­ing the teach­ers of as­sault­ing them.

They de­manded im­me­di­ate ac­tion against the teach­ers in­volved. How­ever they called off the protest when the Vice-chan­cel­lor and the po­lice met them and promised to hold a for­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
