Video: Another assault video goes viral

A video clip showing a policeman assaulting a woman with a cane near the Ratnapura Bus Stand has gone viral.

Around three weeks ago, two women got into a brawl. A policeman on duty tried to pull them apart in order to restore normalcy. Angered by the policeman’s interference, one of the women threw a stone at the police officer. The policeman had retaliated by assaulting the woman with a stick.

An eyewitness has videoed the drama that had taken place with the help of the video camera on his phone and had then uploaded it onto the internet.  Police investigations were in progress. (Lasantha Niroshana)

    You can not beat any one , you just have to cuff them and taken them to the police in case if its difficult to one has any right to beat anyone...specially a woman.

    Also these women are very third class, how the XXX you throw a rock at a policeman who is trying to stop a fight she should be taken to courts for this and given required punishment.

    You are living in a cave or jungle. US, UK police never beat or punish like this a woman

    What the woman did was wrong.
    What the cop did was worse. As a man of power, one needs to be more responsible.

    Dutchy_ Monday, 29 September 2014 04:10 AM

    Situation might have compelled police officer to use of force And he seems to have acted in good faith on behalf of public order

    Nel Monday, 29 September 2014 04:11 AM

    If this is happen in USA, policeman could have shot the woman . I feel that the Sri lanka cop is somewhat better.

    I am a lawyer. Clear evidence of police officer violating law. He should immediately be taken into custody.

    Ra Si Tuesday, 30 September 2014 02:18 AM

    We could imagine how this policeman could have handled a minority woman.
    This is utter shame for the police dept.

    piyal samarakone Wednesday, 01 October 2014 10:57 AM

    who is this cannibal ? disgrace to the entire police department -we have gentlemen in the police - in the past and in the present- he should be expelled no doubt about it.

    Ra Si Tuesday, 30 September 2014 02:20 AM

    You will not say like this if the woman is your sister or wife

    kalanasiri Monday, 29 September 2014 09:41 AM

    What about the beating up of the high commissioner to the Uak, Chris Nonis?

    Ruwan Monday, 29 September 2014 06:17 AM

    Whatever it is police can't beat people like this, especially in public. It's clearly act upon anger.

    Its her right to be what ever she wants. Who has the power to execute her without a proper judgement. Please be more intelligent...
