Students in Tamil Nadu continue protests over Sri Lankan Tamils issue

Students in TN

Students of various colleges in Tamil Nadu continued their protests for the seventh day today over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.

In Chennai, students of Dr Ambedkar Law College continued their hunger strike even as 20 students of IIT-Madras embarked on a similar protest inside their campus, police said.

Protests continued in various parts of the state, including Coimbatore and Tirunelveli, with students pressing for various demands, including an independent probe against Colombo for alleged human rights violantions and moving the International Court of Justice.

City-based Loyola College students had first embarked on a fast-unto-death last week on this emotive issue, with more and more students taking to various forms of protests, including hunger strike and boycott of classes.

Emotions in Tamil Nadu had surged especially after pictures by a private channel showed the alleged cold bloodedkilling of slain LTTE chief V Prabakaran's 12 year-old son, Balachandran.
