Clash at University of Sri Jayewardenepura 1 Security Officer Injured

Clash reported at University of Sri Jayewardenepura between group of students and security officers today evening. It is reported that one Security Officer injured and hospitalized.
A group of students from the university hostel had reportedly attacked the security post at the entrance at around 8.10pm with stones. 

One security guard was injured from the attack and has been admitted to the hospital, Mirihana Police said.

The situation has been brought under control while a large number of police personnel have been station at the university premises, police said.
According to police, a group of students had attacked the guardroom at the university during the clashes. Investigations are ongoing to arrest the suspects.

Today new batch of students has arrived to the university as freshers. Japura university security service is doing Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Ltd. Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Ltd is a government owned Security Company which functions under the Ministry of Defence.

The non-academic staff of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura launched a one-day token strike yesterday, in protest of the university security officers being attacked by several undergraduates on Monday night (24).
One security officer had sustained injuries during the clash with the hostel students, and was admitted to the Kalubowila Hospital as a result, the police said.

According to the university's students' union, what had caused the clash was the hostel security personnel forcing their way into a first-year undergraduate's boarding premises and attempting to intimidate the student.

According to Jayewardenepura University Students Union President, Sampath Wickramasinghe, the university security personnel are responsible for continually harassing students. He also claimed the university authorities were attempting to repress all forms of student activism and had banned 122 students from attending lectures whilst cancelling the studentship of 40 more.

"The security guards went into the hostel of one of the first year undergraduates and were threatening the student. This had subsequently led to a clash between the other students and the security, and one of the security officers was injured. The university administration has to take the responsibility for this incident, because they haven't created a safe and secure environment for the students," Wickremesinghe said.

Meanwhile, Jayewardenepura University Teachers' Association (JUTA) President, Anura Kumara, told, the university authorities were looking into the matter and that the students had also been attacked. However, the non-academic staff launched a one-day token strike to protest against the attack on the security guard, he added.
