Police investigate UPNG rampage

Police have commenced investigation into the burning of vehicles and a building at the UPNG Campus and arrests will be made on students found responsible for causing it.

NCD/ Central Assistance Police Commissioner Sylvester Kalaut, said police forensic team will be on campus to collect evidence from the building that got burned this morning.
“Arson is a crime and those responsible will be arrested and charged for committing the offence,” Kalaut said.

The university’s Director for Public Relations and Event Management Mr. Jim Robbins said the action of the students is criminal in nature and is separate from the boycott issue.

The burning resulted from a clash between campus security and the students who wished to continue the boycott. The clash came about when security personnel tried to stop students from threatening and disrupting classes for the other group of students that have already resumed classes.

A total of four vehicles were burnt and the PNG NRL office located at the campus was damaged along with the other buildings, including the Sir Michael Somare Library.
Meanwhile, police have returned to the campus upon the request of the school administration and will remain there until the situation calms down.
