Dean of Southeastern university escape shooting, driver seriously wounded in Akkaraipattu

[TamilNet, Thursday, 16 November 2006, 13:25 GMT]
Unidentified gunmen opened fire Thursday around 9:15 a.m on the car of the Dean of the Faculty of Arabic, of the Southeastern University at Oluvil near Kaliyodai Bridge in Akaraipattu seriously injuring the driver, Samanthurai police said. The Dean, M. M .S. Jalaldeen, who was on his way to the university from his home in Maruthamunai, escaped without any injuries. The injured driver was rushed to Amparai district hospital, added the sources.

The injured driver is S. Saleem 41.

The Samanthurai police investigating into the shooting said they suspect personal conflicts in the university to be the reason but are yet to find the true motive.

Conflicts and problems had been rife at the Southeastern university due to competition for the high positions in the university. Unidentified persons had set fire to the university administration building last month burning all the documents kept in it, university sources said.
