The protest of the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) went violent with over 85 students being hospitalized after the police used battons, teargas and water cannons to disperse the students who surrounded and took over the Health Ministry building.

The university students forcibly entered the Health Ministry building at Maradana in violation of the court order issued by the Colombo Chief Magistrate.

Earlier today, the Magistrate issued an order preventing IUSF students from forcibly entering state institutions and causing a public nuisance during their protest.

The protesting students renewed their demand to abolish the private medical faculty at the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM). (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Misled uni students are looking for dead bodies to carry around the country.Even though the SITM was abolished they never stop these nuisance behaviour since their real aim is to topple the country.The government should take a firm action against these unruly stupids. If they don't come to study, then send them home and take new batches.

    GMOA is behind these. They get them to do illegalities to create unrest. The students have no right to enter a public building in this manner. GMOA is condoning their actions and wants to strike indefinitely. Why should the GMOA strike for hooliganism of the students. The reason is known to all

    Throw these buggers out and give chance to deserving students who want to study and benefit from free education. These terrorists should be jailed. I really do not know what the government is doing. If you had thrashed the daylights out of them, they will not come again. Where these goons were when GOTA was there???? Cowards now trying to become heroes. Thrash these buggers mercilessly and the GMOA top three also. Everything will become normal.
