    By looking at face I can say that this fellow cannot be rehabilitated. He will be a permanent dark cloud over us.

    All students in state universities (or almost all) get Mahapola money - a monthly dole - to tied over their financial problems, This being the case - how do they finance these marches (printed placards etc) and further more meet expenditure on having news conferences ?

    These clueless fellows should be educated to be civilised and behave well.

    B S Perera Friday, 23 June 2017 01:29 PM

    What about the saboteurs who are behind them?

    B S Perera Friday, 23 June 2017 01:33 PM

    There are many who condoned their acts and encouraged them - Anura Kumara D, Dinesh G, GMOA et.al. Why are they not exposed?

    Ronnie Bugger Friday, 23 June 2017 01:34 PM

    Bloody Good. Just another extremist political pawn. Lock him up and throw away the key.

    BV Friday, 23 June 2017 01:36 PM

    Excellent move.Now release him on bail on Monday so that he could organise another protest and get himself arrested again.So the music goes on.

    Geriatrix Friday, 23 June 2017 01:40 PM

    Damian Friday, 23 June 2017 03:01 PM

    At last this idiot has been arrested. Hope Government take a firm stand against these hooligans.

    rajan Friday, 23 June 2017 04:52 PM

    Should not be given bail/ He should be Primarily held responsible for the damage caused to Public property and for the inconvenience caused to all innocent people that day. Judiciary should discipline this country. we have no faith in the law enforcement agencies and the politicians.

    Don Saturday, 24 June 2017 02:03 PM

    IUSF and GMOA are now affiliated to JVP. Now Lahiru is in Election candidate list already. Why JVP were keeping their big mouths shut while Rajapaksha regime started SAITM, as they were fear of Gota.

    Sri Wickrema Friday, 23 June 2017 05:16 PM

    He is but a puppet in chain. Look for the real culprits.
