The father of Sachini Sewwandi says his daughter's death is suspicious and even hospital authorities are wondering whether she had got infected during the surgery.  

Sewwandi was Sri Lanka’s second heart patient to undergo a heart transplant operation.

Speaking to us Mahesh Kumara said hospital authorities have commenced an investigation to see whether any toxic substance is found in Sewwandi's blood.

He said he will get the report tomorrow.

Sachini Sewwandi underwent her heart transplant operation at the Kandy Hospital.

However, after 4 days, on 30th of September, she died at the ICU of the hospital.

Sewwandi was initially to undergo the transplant on 19th of last month.

However, due to the non-availability of required appliances, the doctors were forced to postpone the surgery.

Hospital Director, Dr. Saman Ratnayake said an investigation is underway to see whether she was infected during the transplant process.
