Police use tear gas and water cannons to disperse protesting university students near the Lotus Roundabout on Tuesday (4). 

The protest march organised by the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) commenced from near the University of the Visual and Performing Arts in Colombo at around 1.30 p.m.

The protesters marched towards the Presidential Secretariat to handover a letter against the alleged repression of students at the Rajarata University and the South Eastern University.
