Student found strangled, 3 more female students summoned by TID

A 21-year-old student from Jaffna University, Nadarasa Kiyani, has been found strangled to death in her house in Chunnakam, reports JDS.

The body of Kiyani, a student of the Fine Arts Faculty, was found by her parents, with a bed sheet wrapped tightly around her neck.

According to initial reports, the post-mortem has deemed the cause of death to be a heart attack.

Meanwhile, the Terrorism Investigation Divison, have ordered three more female students, including the president of the Girls Hostel Students' Union, to report to the Jaffna police station immediately.

JDS quoted one 'academic source' as saying,

“Reports of students being directly summoned is a cause for serious concern, given the fact that four of our students were detained at the Welikanda Military Detention Camp. This is for the first time that female students have been summoned by the TID. The police action has ridiculously reduced the university administration to a mere puppet.”
