Three Rajarata University General Student Union activists were arrested yesterday over the charge of riotous behavior including detaining a group of Rajarata University lecturers and the Vice Chancellor at the Administration building recently.
Police media spokesperson said that another 37 persons connected with the incident had been identified.
The police media spokesman said further that statements of 20 persons had been recorded.
Meanwhile the university administration council decided yesterday to close all faculties of the Rajarata University except the Medical Faculty indefinitely.
Accordingly it had been announced that students should vacate all hostels before 4 p.m. today.
The reason for this is the crisis caused by the boycotting of educational and administrative functions by all university lecturers and the support for this by a group of non-academic staff.
