The remains of three Sri Lankan students who died at Baku in Azerbaijan were brought to the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) this morning on a flight arriving from Doha in Qatar, the airport's senior officer said.

The postmortem examinations were conducted in Azerbaijan and the remains handed over to the relatives.

The three students studying at the Western Caspian University in Baku, Azerbaijan had died in their apartment on January 3 from toxic suffocation after a fire broke out in the building they occupied.

The authorities in Azerbaijan had initiated an investigation into this incident.

The Sri Lankan Government had provided financial assistance of Rs.500,000 to each of the victims to facilitate the airlifting of their bodies to the country.

The victims were identified as Malsha Sandeepani (23), her sister Tharuki Amaya (21) from Bokundara and Hansi Madhubashini (25) from Pahala Biyanwila .

The victims' parents thanked the minister for supporting them at this hour of grief and said they had sent their children to Azerbaijan after mortgaging their properties and selling their jewellery. They also said they were indebted to banks as well as various other individuals. (T.K.G Kapila)

    GMOA should take part of the responsibility for this, they forced to closed down the private medical university in Srilanka, and these students had to go to unknown private universities around the world.

    This is what happens when you don't allow private medical universities in Sri Lanka. These innocent children...die overseas. GMOA this is your fault, your greed and unpatriotic malice.

    Azerbaijan . I am not disrespectful but what is it that they were studying in this country? and in what language and what prospects for employment??? These parents morgaged their lives to send them to this place. Never met or heard of anyone who qualified in that country.

    Why would they go to a country like Azerbaijan which is backward country not known for high educational standard?
