Hong Kong police will ‘make every effort’ to investigate death of student

Hong Kong police on Friday (November 8) said they will ‘make every effort’ to investigate the cause of death of a university student, who became the first student death in months of demonstrations in the Chinese-ruled city.

Chow Tsz-lok, 22, an undergraduate at the University of Science and Technology (UST), died of injuries he suffered in the early hours of Monday (November 4), when he fell from the third to the second floor of a parking lot during a police dispersal operation.

In a news conference, police from the East Kowloon region refuted claims that police was chasing Chow prior to his fall. Police also denied blocking an ambulance. 

Chow’s death, on graduation day for many students, is expected to fuel anger at police, who are already under pressure amid accusations of excessive force as the city grapples with its worst political crisis in decades.
