A body of a man has been found hanging on a tree at a cemetery in the Ballawidda tank in Giradurukotte just minutes after he was allegedly abused at the police station, according to his relatives.

Minutes before his death, the farmer, identified as Sarath Premathilaka (30) had gone to the Giradurukotte police station and had been allegedly beaten and forced to kneel down by the police. He was later released, his relatives claimed.

    I think this is a new law 'hang to death without court order'.

    Police atrocities piling up and up. What is the good Defense Secretary doing about it? When is this going to stop?

    What are the opposition and rights groups doing?

    May the victim rest in peace.

    We have barbaric Police Force in Sri Lanka. It is an institution that tortures citizens. It tarnishes the name of our country. Please fix it. Enough is enough.

    This is Sri Lanka where Rajapakse's, armed forces and bootlickers are treated as patriots and sacred cows. Absolutley nothing will happen to the police, wanna take a billion dollar bet?

    Hanging on a tree looks like an improved method of punishment rather than tying to a tree!

    Dalous Puta Wednesday, 18 August 2010 01:06 PM

    NISSANKA Wednesday, 18 August 2010 09:40 PM

    Police are the judge, jury and executioner?

    adam Wednesday, 18 August 2010 01:25 PM

    Absolutely. I agree 200% with you spark. I think its the south's turn to experience this kind of thing where as it was only happening in the north and east before.

    This seems to be a very familiar story. Might be hushed up.
