2014 Jun 04

The Federation of University Teachers Associations in a letter to the IGP states that politically motivated attacks are carried out against students and members of the staff of Ruhuna University and asks the IGP to instruct his officers to carry out their duties impartially, ensure the safety and security of the students and staff of the University and take action against those who are breaking the law irrespective of their position.

The letter states thugs armed with iron bars broke into the university premises and attacked students and threatened members of the staff. It adds that among the mob were Members of Parliament and Pradeshiya Sabha members linked to the ruling party.
