[TamilNet, Thursday, 16 September 2004, 14:58 GMT]
Miss T.Indranee, a teacher conducting evening classes to drop-out students the under UNICEF project ''Regaining Lost Education'' in Mirusuvil north in Thenmaradchchi in Jaffna district Thursday complained to the Jaffna regional office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) that she and her students had been severely assaulted by Kodikamam Police Tuesday, education sources said.

A group of about fifteen policemen from Kodikamam Police had gone in a jeep to the institution Tuesday evening and started assaulting the teacher and students without any reason, Miss. Indranee said in her complaint to the HRCSL.

All students assaulted by the Police are under 18 years of age and had dropped out of formal education due to the two-decade old war.

These students attend evening classes in an educational institution located at Chuttipuram in Mirusuvil north, sources said.

The UNICEF project is supported by the Deparment of Education.
