Academic activities of the Jaffna University will begin on January 16 after a two-month disruption following the arrest and detention of four students by the military, university sources said.

The four students who are detained at a rehabilitation camp in Welikanda had reportedly requested their colleagues to attend lectures stating that the authorities had promised them they would be released soon.

They had conveyed this message to the Deans and Lecturers who had spoken to the students over the phone.

The university Vice Chancellor will meet the Faculty Deans and the Lecturers on January 7 with a view to resuming university activities.

The students have been continuing to boycott lectures after 11 students were arrested in November in the wake of allegedly holding a LTTE commemoration ceremony within the university premises. Seven of the students were released with four of the students still under detention.(Menaka Mookandi and K. Suren)
