When asked by Daily Mirror about Senior DIG Champika Siriwardene’s claim that the HNDA student was not beaten by the Police but was only being removed from the location, the student Sasini Sandeepani said she was not assisted by the policemen to remove but was only repeatedly beaten on the head.

A first-year HNDA student the 21-year-old Sasini Sandeepani was clearly seen in the photographs being beaten by a policeman during the HNDA protest at Ward Place.

She said this was the first time that she had participated in a protest.

Colombo National Hospital doctors had recommended her to undergo a CT scan, also called an X-ray computed tomography (X-ray CT) due to her constant head pains, she said.

After the photographs were published, the attack on the students came in for severe criticism by the people. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    Some police officers deliberately act in such a way to bring disrepute to the current govt with such behaviour. They should be fired!

    It was not the students that the people criticised but the baton wielding thugs in uniform. Only an insane person will say that the Police officers were correct.God save the yahapalakayas.

    Change in the government but no change in the attitude or policy. This kind of treatment in the past made me to quit the country way back in 1978. May god save the democracy!

    Do not blame the government but blame the students. Students have to set an example. They have to behave.

    Students have to behave as students. Not as protesters to teach the LAW.
