Quilla had gone to Lima to participate in the demonstrations against the government of Dina Boluarte, a situation in which he was surrounded and beaten by the police. The family claims to have all the evidence of police mistreatment.
According to human rights organizations, the death of Quilla becomes one more element for the investigations and a key to determine the violations by the Boluarte regime, who was appointed president by Congress on December 7, after the dismissal of the constitutional president Pedro Castillo.
