The undergraduates of the Jaffna University have begun a fast in front of the University, demanding the release of Tamil detainees.

The fast began this morning (17).

The university students are staging this fast in support of a fast undertaken by the Tamil detainees at Anuradhapura Prison.

The university students said that it was sad that the government has failed to fulfill its promise to release the detainees.

Meanwhile, the Northern Governor Reginald Cooray held a discussion with the university students yesterday and there he promised that he will fix a discussion for the students with the President to discuss the issue.

However, the university students have begun the fast disregarding the Governor's promise.

Around 200 university students are taking part in the fast and they say they would continue their action until Tamil detainees are released.
