A tense situation prevailed in the Ruhuna University a short while ago when some residents supporting the ‘Deyata Kirula Exhibition’ forcibly entered the university.

Several residents had gathered opposite the university along the Matara- Kataragama main road and shouted out slogans in support of the Deyata Kirula. Some of them had forcibly entered the university and one student was injured in a clash.

Sources said the police managed to bring the situation under control and removed the outsiders from the university premises but they continued to block the main road. (Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)
