Nisali Perera, studying at the Monash University had been killed in a hit-and-run in Melbourne's south-east late last night.

Nisali Perera, originally from Sri Lanka, was on her way home from Monash University just before 10pm when she was hit by a car and thrown more than 20 metres.

Police said she was crossing the road at Wellington Street near Scenic Boulevard in Clayton. The driver failed to stop.

CCTV footage from shortly after the incident shows woman police would like to speak to, and an alleged accomplice, walking through a service station moments before an ambulance raced to reach Ms Perera.

The vehicle involved in the hit-run was later found dumped at an old church on North Road in Clayton about 11pm, roughly 700 metres from the scene of the crash.

They believe the car was speeding before the collision. It had not been reported stolen to police.

Detectives from the Major Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for public assistance. Anyone who saw the incident or has dash-cam footage is urged to contact police.

    I hope the country’s law will treat everyone equally and bring justice to Nilasi Perera and her parents.
