July 30, Colombo: The Vice Chancellor of the Rajarata University of Sri Lanka said that the academic work of all the faculties that have been closed for nearly a month would resume on August 04.

Vice Chancellor Prof. Ranjith Wijewardena said the decision was taken at a discussion with the deans of all the faculties.

The university administration decided to close the university after students, demanding the administration to revoke the suspension of 28 of their colleagues took the Vice Chancellor and several academic staff hostage and held for 23 hours in his office.

The incident took place on June 26 and 27. Police mediated and resolved the conflict without a clash but the authorities decided to close the university on July 02 as the academic staff decided it was not safe for them to attend the duties and boycotted work.

A discussion between the parents of the suspended students and the university administrators was held on July 28.

University sources said that the authorities have decided to pardon the students whose studentship was suspended.
