Secretary of the Commission Ariyadasa Cooray said that he gathered information on the incident when he visited Jaffna. The NPC appointed the officer to probe into the incident in Jaffna last Monday.

The two students were killed on the night of October 20 in Kokkuvil, six kilometres from Jaffna town. Initially, police claimed that the two victims died of injuries suffered after their motorbike crashed into a wall. The Judicial Medical Officer’s report on the deaths revealed that the rider had a bullet wound in the chest while the pillion rider suffered head injuries after the motorbike crashed into the wall.

It later transpired that a group of police officers on patrol had allegedly opened fire on the students after they had allegedly ignored signals to stop. Police though, made no mention of the shooting initially and claimed the two students had been killed in the accident.

Five police officers have been arrested and interdicted over the incident.
