On the day of the funeral, Friday (07), the funeral procession of was to take the road in front of the Sir John Kothalawala Maha Vidyalaya, to reach the cemetery. However the principal has reportedly taken measures to get a restraining order preventing them from using the said road and preventing the students from attending the funeral wearing the school uniform.

The deceased student, who is identified as Venusha Imandi is a resident of Thorayaya, Dambulla road, was a beautiful girl facing the O/L examination this year.

In a letter written over two foolscap sheets by the student before she committed suicide she has mentioned that the principal has scolded her in filth.

In the letter written to her father she has stated that the principal scolded her using even inappropriate words for an offense she did not commit and that she is committing suicide so that another student will not have to face the same plight in future.
