Death of student boxer: two suspects released
Maharagama magistrate Sumith Perera released the two suspects
remanded in connection with the death of a student-boxer. He had died
due to an internal haemorrhage according to medical evidence.
The boy's mother earlier told court that she suspects foul play and
requested to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the death.
Senior Counsel Upali Senaratne who appeared for the suspects
submitted to court that there was no evidence to prove that this was a
murder according to medical evidence. After submissions by Senaratne and
the Police, the magistrate ordered the two suspects to furnish cash bail
in Rs.10,000 each and a bond of Rs 100,000 each.
The student's mother and another student of the boxing team of the
same school gave evidence at the magisterial inquiry earlier.
Senior Attorney Senaratne with Sumith Parakkrama and Dashinth Thabrew
appeared for the two suspects.
Attorney Sudath Wickremaratne appeared for the aggrieved party. The
case will be called on March 27.
