Jaffna University students launched a protest today over the shooting of two university students who are alleged to have disregarded orders to stop their motorcycle when asked to do so at a police roadblock.

The two students had died on admission to hospital.

The protesting students blocked the entrance to the Jaffna District Secretariat and boycotted lectures demanding that justice be meted out to the two students.

They claimed that a fear psychosis prevailed among the people with regard to the civil administration in the Peninsular after what they described as an unwarranted act by the police who had shot the students over a minor incident.  (Romesh Madushanka)

    "Minor Incident". Fleeing against the police order can not be considered a minor incident at all, although it appears that a use of excessive force had applied. When dealing with Jafna uni students, they want to have special preference, because they think they are a very special breed.

    What else can the Police when fleeing against their orders. Law should be applied equitably everywhere in the country, without special treatment to one segment of the population.

    What about the Sinhalese uni students who were seriously assaulted by tamil students in Jaffna at a cultural show? Were the culprits found and brought to justice? Why the special treatment?
