Staff and students at the University of Jaffna paid tribute on Friday to the two students killed a year ago by Sri Lankan police.

Media faculty students Nadarajah Kajan and Vijayakumar Sulaxan were shot dead by Jaffna police officers in Kokkuvil on October 20th 2016, sparking protests across the North-East, further around the island and internationally.

The tribute event on the first year anniversary of their deaths was organised jointly by students, academic staff and non-academic employees at the university.
