In August 2020, Wishma went to a police station in Shimizu, Shizuoka, to seek shelter from her boyfriend's domestic violence, only to be sent to a detention facility run by the Nagoya Regional Immigration Services Bureau. This was despite a 2008 directive from Japan's Immigration Bureau (later Immigration Services Agency) to its facilities to treat domestic violence victims with appropriate care and possibly grant them residency.Hunger strike ekak neda machan

Wishma stated that she wanted to return to Sri Lanka, but she was put on a waiting list as she could not afford a flight home as commercial flights were unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After receiving threats from her ex and being offered potential accommodation from a supporter, she decided to ask to stay in Japan, and applied for provisional release on January 4, 2021, which was rejected on February 16.
Around mid-January 2021, she became ill and began experiencing a range of symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, numbness, and difficulty walking. On February 5, a gastroenterologist saw her and suspected she had reflux esophagitis, and prescribed medication, which the doctor said should be administered intravenously if she could not take it orally. When a supporter met her on February 9, she was on a wheelchair, carrying a bucket for vomiting, and had lost 15.5 kilograms (34 lb). A urine test on February 15 showed she was in a state of starvation. On February 22, she filed another application for provisional release. As her condition deteriorated, Wishma repeatedly made requests to see a doctor at a hospital, which the facility denied on the grounds that an appointment had already been set. On March 4, a psychiatrist saw her, prescribed an antipsychotic, and recommended provisional release. Two days later, she was found unresponsive and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Although her blood pressure and pulse had been undetectable since the morning of March 5, an ambulance was not called until 2:15 pm on March 6. An autopsy report disclosed to parliament members named a complication from thyroiditis and failure of organs such as the kidneys as the likely cause of her death.
According to the Immigration Services Agency's report, supporters visited Wishma 25 times, and between February 3 and March 3 made four requests that she be taken to a hospital, receive intravenous therapy, and be granted provisional release. Top officials of the bureau were aware of neither the requests nor the psychiatrist's recommendation for release. On March 1, an officer made a mocking remark when Wishma had trouble swallowing drink and it regurgitated through her nose. On the day she died, an officer asked her if she was "high", referring to the antipsychotic she had taken. The report said some detention officers believed detainees would exaggerate their health problems in order to obtain provisional release.
නොකා නොබී ඉදපු කතාවක් නෑ බන්. කවුද එහෙම කියන්නෙ?Oya kellata ohoma noka nobi inna upades dunna ekata mulin gahanna ona.
Anika lankawe channel karaya video eka dagena tiyana heti balapan.
Me scene eka wikuanan kannane hadanne.
Anika kiyana taram amanushika gathiyak pen nehe mata nam.
Mage wereddakda dn ne eka.
