Protesting Students Tear Gassed

Feb 24, 2011 9:05:52 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Police have today (24) used tear gas and water-cannons to disperse students from the medical faculty of the Rajarata University who were engaged in a protest in Fort.

The students were dispersed by the police after they had ignored a warning not to protest near the Presidential Secretariat.

The medical faculty students of the Rajarata University were protesting against the delay in the establishment of the clinical training building at the university when they were tear gassed.

The students have said that the delay would result in them lagging behind medical graduates from other universities.
