Ruhuna Campus Closes Indefinitely Following Stabbing

Jun 19, 2010 5:34:05 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Ruhuna University announced yesterday the indefinite closure of its campus, following internal clashes that took place on its premises on Wednesday (16th) that left three persons injured.

According to reports, first year students from the Faculty of Management and Accounting and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences had clashed with third year students from the Faculty of Arts, and another outside group from the nearby village of Rasandeniya.

The incident was said to have begun with an argument that had erupted during a function held for first year students of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Science and Technology.

Three students were injured in the clash – including one that was stabbed – and were admitted to the Matara Base Hospital.

Further investigations are being conducted into the incident.
