The youth, who was injured after jumping from an upper floor of a house during a clash with police in Embilipitiya, succumbed to the injuries, this morning (07), the police said.
Four policemen and three civilians were hospitalised with injuries following the clash during a celebration at a residence on Nawa Nagara Road in Embilipitiya last Tuesday.
It has been reported that two policemen had asked for liquor from the homeowners after the start of the house party and the ensuing argument between villagers and the police officers had escalated into fisticuffs.
Afterwards another group of police officers had arrived at the scene resulting in further clashes with attendees of the event and ending with several individuals from both groups being hospitalised.
A nearby home was also damaged from the incident while blood stains were seen at several locations in that house.
