The Jaffna University Teachers' Union said that although 7 out of the 11 students who were arrested by the Terrorism Investigations Department (TID) have been released the teachers would continue with their protest campaign until all students are released.
The Union said the teachers would return to work only after all students have been released.

University activities came to a standstill after police arrested 11 Jaffna University students and handed them to the TID following a clash on November 27th where the students tried to commemorate the Heroes Day-Martyr Day.
