The body of the 19-year-old school student killed due to assault with a sharp weapon near a tuition class on Aelavehlla Road in Matara was brought to his home in Mahahena in Naayimbala in Matara yesterday.
Police has taken action to inform all police stations island-wide regarding three students suspected in connection with the killing.
While the students connected with the incident have by now fled the area, three police squads are conducting investigations for arresting them.
While statements have been recorded from the parents of the students as well, they had stated that they had no information about their children.
The motorcycle in which the suspects had come to commit the crime was recovered last afternoon abandoned close to the Matara town.
