All educational and administrative activities of the University of Jaffna came to a complete halt Monday as its students launched their boycott of lectures in protest against the indiscriminate and deadly attacks unleashed by the government of Sri Lanka on the Tamil people in Vanni, sources in Jaffna said. A larger number of policemen and Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were deployed in and around the university premises.

Jaffna University Students Union (JUSU) had released a media report Saturday announcing the boycott, seeking the support of Jaffna peninsula residents.

Majority of the students did not come to the university Monday and around a hundred students who were present did not attend lectures.

All lecture halls remained closed and the administrative activities of the university had stalled.

Only the Vice-chancellor was present in his office.

Many students left home early and there were no checking although there were a large number of police and army personnel deployed in the campus premises.
