A video showing a group of people assaulting a young girl and a boy who had come to Kurunegala to attend the SLFP anniversary celebrations on Sunday has gone viral on social media websites.

According to reports, they were among a group of supporters of an SLFP organizer of the Gampaha District and had got into a brawl with another group of people who had come to attend the event.

The incident later led to a brawl between the girl’s companions and those who attacked her.

However, the police managed to rescue the boy and the girl and settle the matter.

The reason for the assault was unknown.

When asked about the incident, Kurunegala HQI said no complaint had been made to the police on any such incident. (Pushpakumara Jayaratne)

    Typical SL Police. Nobody can misbehave on public roads and the assault is happening in front of the Police. The Police cannot hide behind the underskirt that "nobody has made a complaint" but arrest all parties involved and hold an investigation. They should be charged for misbehavior and violence in a public location. Shameless Sri Lanka Police who are totally incompetent.

    These are Police???? What a bunch of useless whimps. There was a woman getting beaten up by a bunch of real he-men and the police could not control the situation. What a laugh.

    Our police is a shame and a disgrace to any good society. No one can assault or misbehave in public. Such persons should be arrested on sight and produced. This inhuman and brutal assault on a public place is viral in the social media. What other proof does the police need to arrest the criminals. Over to you yahapalanaya via DM Android App

    Why police require a complain when it is related public safety and security. Irresponsible behavior.

    we boast of 2600 years of culture and this how we behave? What a great example of a buddhist country.
