All schools in Jaffna were closed responding to a request from the Jaffna Campus Students Consortium. Students have planned to boycott school until 19 October in protest of the killing.

Students continued to block the Jaffna-Point Pedro road and the Kaithady-Urumpirai road at Kopay junction. Students also shouted slogans against the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and the Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP).
