Jail the Sword wielding gangs; university students demand in protest rally.

Following a spate of sword attacks and gang warfare in the peninsula and more recently an innocent University student being attacked with a sword and his hand severed, the university students staged a protest rally yesterday calling for action to be taken by legal establishments to put a full stop to Sword attacks which had become a menace to the public including University students.

During the rally they condemned attacks on University students. Day before yesterday a university student’s hand was severed during a sword attack and the worst part is him being attacked due to a mistaken identity.
