Police fire tear gas at protesters near UGC ( Videos )
University students filed a complaint against the police today at the Human Rights Commission (HRC) of Sri Lanka after the police had assaulted some of them yesterday during a protest in Colombo.
The Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) said that 28 students were injured in the assault while 4 students had been arrested.
The police fired tear gas to disperse the university students when they staged a protest opposite the University Grants Commission (UGC) in Colombo.
After holding a protest march from Fort, the students blocked the road opposite the UGC office and staged a protest over several demands.
The police later used tear gas and dispersed the protesting students and assaulted some of them.
