[TamilNet, Monday, 06 March 2006, 15:54 GMT]
Students organisations in Jaffna district jointly boycotted schools Monday protesting against increasing Sri Lanka Army(SLA) officers' interference in administrative affairs in Jaffna,student officials said. Protesting students burnt the effigy of Northern Region Sri Lanka Military Commander, Maj. Gen. Chandrasiri in front of Jaffna Hindu College. Though large number of armed Police and Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were stationed near all schools from early morning the boycott ended without incidents and normalcy prevailed in Jaffna, sources said.

Meanwhile, though heavily armed police and army took up position from early morning anticipating student unrest in Point Pedro region around Hartley College, Point Pedro Methodist Girls' High School and Mahajana College in Tellipalai, situation remained calm as all students kept away from schools, sources said.

Normal life preveiled in Jaffna district with shops opened, banks and government offices functioning, transport services and traffic running smooth, despite the heavy presence of armed forces and the student agitation.
