Quiet events paying homage to late Anton Balasingham were held in higher educational institutions, University of Jaffna and Technical College.

Posters in memory of late Anton Balasingham were seen pasted at several places in the peninsula.

Limited bus services were run so that GCE OL examinations and school term tests could take place without any hindrance.
