The Kelaniya University was closed indefinitely from today after an incident between two students groups last night and this morning. However, the Medical Faculty is not affected by this closure.
The decision to close the University was arrived at a meeting held by the Senate following the incident.
“The clash could not be resolved despite several rounds of discussion held between the two rivaling student groups. Several students have been hospitalised. The campus has been declared out of bounds for all students except medical students” Professor Piyadasa said.
According to Police Media Division the clashes were due to Arts Faculty students damaging the banners of a Medical exhibition held in the University. Five students have been admitted to the Kiribathgoda Hospital last night and today morning.
