Posters have appeared in Jaffna university threatening students and the leader of the Teachers' Union with death as Maaveerar Naal approaches, reports Uthayan.
Students from the media department and geography department were named in the posters, alongside the head of the Jaffna University Teachers' Union, warning them that they would be shot if they attempted to observe the upcoming remembrance day.
“They are creating tigers, we will shoot them,” said the posters written in improper Tamil.
“We will not allow to observe Maveerar Thinam [Heroes Day].” (sic)
Nam Thesam reported that the posters have spread fear at the university, which has seen an increased presence of Sri Lankan security forces in the last week.
