Second death reported from Sri Lanka's drinking water struggle
The dead person was identified as a 19 year old youth, police media spokesman Buddhika Siriwardane said. He was in an Intensive Care Unit of Colombo National Hospital since Thursday until he passed away last night.
Earlier, a 17 year old school boy was also killed due to Army shooting.
Five more persons are still in National Hospital due to the injuries sustained as Army used 'minimum power' to disperse the protestors.
The protest was against a Heyleys subsidiary rubber factory in Rathupaswala and the residents of 12 villages claim that the drinking water has been contaminated due to the industrial waste of this factory.
