How many Sri Lankan cops does it take to subdue one single Tamil student who is unarmed?

(JAFFNA, Sri Lanka) - A protest was carried out by the students from the University of Jaffna today.

The protest was organized after some security officials had entered the university premises and threatened two students there by displaying weapons yesterday.

Predictably, the police arrived to stop the protest.

The situation turned intense, police batons were soon flying and one student was also admitted to the Jaffna training hospital for treatment of injuries.

The chairperson of the student union from the university, Bhavanandan, stated that the security officials started attacking the students.

It is reported that the situation has now turned peaceful.

The above images show incidents from the protest.
