"I am shocked and sad. I have to carry out the funeral rites to my father sooner than expected. I did not expect my father to die suddenly. My younger brother and two of my younger sisters did not get a chance to travel to Colombo to attend our father's funeral. They are left alone in Jaffna. I am worried about them as to what will happen to them, when we are away from home" says a final year Management student of Jaffna University Alagarasa Nirmal (24) from Puloly west, Point Pedro who came to Colombo to attend his father's funeral
