Action will be taken against the police personnel who attacked the disabled soldiers during the recent protest in Colombo, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament yesterday.

He was responding to a question asked by joint opposition MP Dinesh Gunawardane.

The Prime Minister said investigations would also be carried out to find out who had manipulated or prompted disabled soldiers to act in the manner they did.

He said the disabled soldiers had continued their protest even after the Government had made arrangements to grant their demands and added that the participation of a Buddhist monk at the protest was also questionable. (Yohan Perera)

    For heaven sake dont punish those policemen for doing their job against these unruly demonstrators. Soldiers, disable or able can do any thing wrong and the mentality created is, that they should not be punished as they have fought for the country. This argument is ridiculous and it has no value. People expect you to behave like a statesmen.

    Now that's the way a PM should respond. Yes the police should not have attacked the disabled soldiers and yes it could be possible that someone had pushed the soldiers to attack and for sure a monk should not have been on the site.

    Looks like its a staged drama to discredit the government by the JO. Policemen supporting JO for some reason made the attack and disabled soldiers too joint hands with them.
