A student, who was undergoing leadership training at the Peradeniya Gannoruwa Army Camp and was admitted to the Peradeniya Hospital on 26 January, due to a sudden ailment, passed away yesterday.


The student, identified as Mudiyanselage Lahiru Sandaruwan Rathnayake, had been admitted to the Peradeniya Hospital following complaints of chronic stomach cramps and had been subjected to surgery on 28 January.

He had then been transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital as his condition had worsened. According to the Police Media Unit, the student had been in a coma up to the time of his death.When contacted by Ceylon Today, Military Spokesperson Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said according to the father of the deceased, the student had been receiving treatment for an ailment from which he had been suffering since his infancy.


Asked whether students were subject to a fitness test, prior to their enrolment in the leadership training programme, Brigadier Wanigasooriya said, "No. That is not our responsibility. It is the Ministry of Higher Education which is tasked with obtaining their fitness reports."


Attempts made to contact the Peradeniya Hospital Director, to ascertain the cause of death, proved futile. Many attempts to contact Higher Education Minister, S.B. Dissanayake, and the Ministry Secretary also failed.


Selected to the University of Jaffna, upon successfully sitting the GCE Advanced Level Examination in the commerce stream from the Nochchiyagama Vidyadarshi College, Lahiru Sandaruwan was 21 years old at the time of his demise.
