Cousin of deceased domestic worker at Rishad’s house begins hunger strike

A cousin of the girl who died while working at the residence of former Minister Rishad Bathiudeen commenced a hunger strike in Jaffna on Tuesday, demanding an impartial inquiry into the death.

The man, who hails from the upcountry plantation area and is currently working for an institution in Jaffna, began the hunger strike in front of the Jaffna Bus Station. He said that when he last visited Colombo, he went to the former minister's house to see his relative, but the occupants of the house had refused his request to meet the girl.

He called for an impartial inquiry into his cousin’s sexual assault and death.
