Raveendran who was following a postgraduate course in Moratuwa University was abducted 24 March night by armed persons inside the high security area in Madiwela in Colombo while he was returning to the parliamentarian's residence.

The Arts Faculty Students Union (AFSU) in Jaffna University had extended a request Tuesday to the students of other faculties to join in the Wednesday boycott.
