Thousands of students gathered in front of Fort railway station, Colombo, to protest the death of a fellow student in a protest down south, at Ruhuna University. In this case a student died after clashes with the police. His mother later retracted her statement saying the police only beat his back and bag and the IGP Police said the student died of natural causes. The word of the police aside, however, thousands of students have brought the protest to Colombo to take a stand against police brutality.
