The Tamil Nadu government on Thursday ordered the reopening from Feb 9 of most colleges that were closed down to prevent the spread of student protests over Sri Lanka's war.

"The presently closed medical, veterinary, engineering and agricultural colleges will reopen from Feb 9 (Monday)," Chief Secretary KS Sripathy said in a statement.

"The reopening dates of other educational institutions will be intimated later," the statement added.

All colleges and their hostels in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry were closed on Monday following protests in both places in support of a ceasefire in Sri Lanka.
