Terror at Rambukkana: A 15-year-old schoolboy shot in the police shooting

On April 19 in Rambukkana, the police opened fire to disperse a protest which resulted in a 41-year-old father of two.

The case was taken to court yesterday and it was revealed that the police had not made a proper report to the court regarding the injured in the incident.

A 15-year-old schoolboy was also shot in the police shooting. He was shot in the arm and back and suffered a broken bone in his arm.

The student was returning home from school when he was shot and was not involved in any protests.

The student’s mother told the media that the student was standing in a somewhat mountainous area and that he had been chased and shot by the police.

Earlier, during the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime in 2013, the Army opened fire on a protest in Rathupaswala, killing two school children in a similar manner. It seems that this Rambukkana student has survived.

The Kegalle Magistrate’s Court yesterday ordered the arrest of all the police officers who ordered the Rambukkana shooting and conducted the shooting, and it was reported that SSP KB Keerthiratne, who ordered the shooting, is currently in hiding at the Narahenpita Police Hospital.
