Vice Chancellor of the Jayewardenepura University says that strict disciplinary action will be taken against the student monks who had allegedly assaulted university officials
Vice Chancellor Dr. N. L. A. Karunaratne has been quoted in the media saying that less than 20 student monks were involved in the assault.
According to the Vice Chancellor, the act of several student monks has brought disrepute to other student monks as well.
The media reported that university officials were allegedly assaulted by the student monks after the Vice Chancellor and few others had made an inspection tour in the university’s bhikkhu hostel following complaints from residents about the alleged unruly behavior of student monks.
Meanwhile, student monks at the university have launched a protest outside the university over allegations that the Vice Chancellor had abused some of the monks when he visited their hostel on Sunday night.
