BY PIYUMI FONSEKA & ROMESH MADUSHANKA A clash between two student factions on Saturday has led to the closure of the Science Faculty of the Jaffna University until further notice.

The minister told Daily Mirror that violence among university students could be seen everywhere in the country, and this was not something unusual. “I, as the minister, instructed the University Grants Commission to get in touch with the Jaffna University authorities and sort out the matter. The university has been closed for the time being, — till tension is reduced,” he said.
