Organised by the Jaffna University Student Union, the protest began at 8am this morning, with students holding placards, demanding to know why Jaffna University was being treated differently.

Last month, the student union asserted that the prolonged closure of Jaffna University, was a policy that attacked the Jaffna students' ability to progress academically.
