HNDA student Sasini Sandeepani who was beaten by a policeman during a protest at Ward Place had been admitted to the National Hospital again on Sunday afternoon because of constant head pains.
She underwent a CT scanning on Sunday night and the doctors had assured the scan was normal. “But, the doctors are keeping me overnight since I’m experiencing heavy head pains. They will discharge me after the observations of Judicial Medical Officer, Colombo on Tuesday,” Sandeepani told the Daily Mirror.
Sandeepani, who was undergoing treatment at the National Hospital following the attack, was earlier discharged on Friday by doctors and she complained that they had discharged her despite her constant head pains. (Piyumi Fonseka)

Head injuries are often fatal ...at times blood clots or hemorrhage can take place any time after lethal blows.Since it was an intentional action by the police (even knowing physical damages) , she should file a case.Sad to see the atrocities by the police on the public.

There should be strict rules and controls of student activities which are manipulated by miscreant politicians. All demos etc must be banned and students asked to pursue their studies.

Oh, no, ask them to go to Hunnasgiri Hills and hold protests. No one would care.

Yes, Agreed. They should be cleared to avoid inconvenience to the public. But that does not mean it must be done in a brutal or inhuman way by attacking and cracking their skulls. Police does not have that right.

Everyone is talking about student rights. What about our right to free movement when the students block public roads - should not they be cleared for peaceful people to move about. Why not ask protesters to go to Hyde Park or some such open space.

The whole point of a protest is to make people take notice. I think this was a silly protest, but people must be free to exercise their rights.It will be some time, I think, before Sri Lankans get comfortable again with the ideas of democracy and human rights.

of course yes, their main motive is to create a havoc to daily life of every lankan with absurd claims to equate a 2 year HND to 4 year degree. my foot. play fool during al...never study miss out golden opportunity the free education gives you and now get onto streets and make everyone s life worse? i have zero ounce of empathy to this goons supported by failed politicians

When free education is given at the cost of tax payers the students must reciprocate with disciplined ways. When other youth of their age are toiling hard to earn; women of their age are slaving in the middle east households, we could expect better from free riding students.

These comments shows how selfish we are. We are not interested in understanding the difficulties of other. Very self centered

Clearly this young girl was not attacking the Police and she should not have been assaulted. The relevant Police Officer should be suspended immediately pending investigation. The law should also apply to the Police and they will then be more careful. The Police should also be educated on treating the public with respect for its our taxes that pay for their upkeep.

Agreed. Everyone has a right to what they "should" be provided. Awarding degree status to a higher diploma is not something like that!
Mangala Tuesday, 03 November 2015 07:54 AM
Yes, it is a good suggestion. Hyde park is a good venue for such protests.
