‘There is no connection between my suicide and the girl. I am quite pressurized and I know I would not get good results at the O/L examination. Although my friends did many wrong deeds I tried to move off from such conducts. I committed many wrongdoings due my unawareness.  I have already broken my parents’ trust twice’ the boy had written in his letter.

The Magisterial inquiry into the student’s death was held in the evening yesterday.

Galle Poddala Police is investigating.
