The Sri Lankan Military intelligence Sunday (Dec. 16) arrested three more students of Jaffna University. All residents of Polikandy, they had been handed over to Vavuniya camp, their relatives had been told upon inquiry. Meanwhile, Jaffna university officials said the Sri Lankan defence secretary had rejected their request to free the four undergraduates arrested earlier and detained at Welikanda rehabilitation camp. Led by vice chancellor Wasanthi Arseratnam, a university team met the defence secretary three days ago. When pointed out that the other students would not participate in lectures until their colleagues were freed, the defence secretary has told them that they would be released only after rehabilitation, Prof. Kadiragamanathan Kandasmy, who attended the discussion, told BBC Tamil Service.  ]]>
