Uthayan's ragging coverage earns students' ire
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 January 2003, 03:44 GMT]
Jaffna University students protested against story alleging involvement of students in ragging activities published in Uthayan, a leading Tamil news paper in Jaffna, by a campus wide boycott of lectures on Monday, sources in Jaffna said.
Protesting students said that the story alleging senior students have subjected incoming freshmen to sexual harassment during ragging is a fabrication by the newspaper.
Students who assembled in Kailasapathy Auditorium tore off a copy of Uthayan paper and said that they will continue the protest until the management makes a public apology, sources in Jaffna said.
