Account from a relative:
My daughter Hamsana went to participate in a leadership training course for the High school students. She was very intelligent and respectful of others. I have never been an obstacle to her decisions. On that day also I sent her for that training and was looking forward her return home. On 14 August 2006, morning, the Sri Lankan air force Kfirs attacked the
Vallipunam area. The news spread that the location where the school girls were participating in the leadership training was attacked by the Kfir jets. I was nervous and immediately left to search for my daughter. First I went to Puthukkudiyiruppu Government hospital and then to Ponnampalam private hospital. My daughter was not in these two hospitals. At last I went to Kilinochchi hospital and my daughter was there. She was injured in her head. At that time she was talking with me and with our relatives. On that night she stopped her talking and went into an unconscious state. After that night, she didn’t talk. Immediately doctors changed her to another unit in the hospital. No one was permitted to enter that place to see my daughter other than the doctors. At last we were informed that my daughter died at 10.40am on 16 August. All my hopes were destroyed with her death.
