Ki'linochchi female undergrad arrested in Peradeniya University

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 November 2009, 11:21 GMT]
Sri Lanka Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers took into custody a Tamil female undergrad, a native of Ki’linochchi, Thursday afternoon from Peredeniya University in Kandy but she is yet to be released and her whereabouts remain unknown, according to complaint lodged with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Kandy office by fellow Tamil undergrads.

According to the complaint, the female undergrad was attending lectures on Thursday along with her fellow undergrads. Around 2:15 p.m a security officer of the university entered the lecture hall and told her that she was wanted by the CID officials who were waiting in the university compound.

She then left the lecture hall accompanied by the security officer. Fellow undergrads thereafter rushed out of the lecture hall and saw her being taken by the CID team in a jeep.

She was first taken to the Peradeniya police station. Thereafter she was brought to her room in the student quarters. She collected her belongings there. Later the CID team took her with her belongings to Colombo for further interrogation.

Meanwhile fellow Tamil undergrads of the Arts Faculty of the Peradeniya University Friday morning started boycotting lectures demanding her release without delay, Peredeniya university sources said.
