23-year-old Alianza fan Oyarce Walter died after he was reportedly yanked out of a VIP box, and dropped from a deadly 30-yard height.

Walter's death happened only after the full time whistle had blown and Universitario secured a 2-1 win over their bitter rivals.

And Alianza have now demanded that the Monumental Stadium be closed following the incident which they said happened when fans of the home club burst into VIP boxes and attacked the occupants at the end of the match.

"I request the veto of Universitario's Monumental stadium as there is no guarantee of safety, what happened to this Alianza fan is deplorable," Alianza president Guillermo Alarcón told the club's website.

"We were also attacked, we had difficulty getting out, our buses had to wait for one hour.

"We are not playing at the Monumental stadium again, it's unacceptable that there are acts of violence at this stadium."

The sorry state of the security forces at the ground was further highlighted by reports that those responsible for death of the Alianza fan escaped without getting caught.

According to witnesses, the police could not arrest the assailants because fellow Universitario hooligans stopped him.
