The police officer who was seen in flames during the UNP led protest campaign against the 18th Amendment to the constitution yesterday has been admitted to the police hospital for treatment.

Police media spokesman Priyashantha Jayakody speaking to Daily Mirror online, said that the police officer had sustained burn injuries on his neck after his uniform collar caught fire during the demonstration.

A UNP supporter was seen throwing a cloth which was engulfed in flames towards the police officers who were holding the demonstrators back using barricades in order to prevent them from heading towards Parliament.

The cloth fell between the police officers resulting in one officer’s collar catching fire which was subsequently doused with the help of his colleagues.

Asked if there is a move to arrest the UNP supporter, the police spokesman said that a decision in that regard has not yet been arrived at. (Daily Mirror online)

    I too feel sorry for the poor man. Why harm these people when they are only carrying out what they'd been ordered to do.

    As much as i hate the cops in this country, i think this is wrong. UNP protests don't generally break in to violence like this, and it is shameful that this happened.

    It is time we Sri Lankans think what we should and will do than blindly follow orders. This is for all Sri Lankans not just the cops.

    This could have all been prevented if our Dear Ranil had back bone and prevented Govt Bring in 18 A, having protest is of no use as long as any rajapakse lives hey are the presidents

    I feel sorry for the cop, they are only doing their duty, if not they lose their jobs and go to prison like the General.

    This will be explained as a peaceful demonstration by the opposition.If the person who threw this fire ball at the policeman was arrested,it would have been describes as police brutality!!!

    Rodrigo Thursday, 09 September 2010 03:04 AM

    For once, police is on fire!!!

    DHA Thursday, 09 September 2010 03:31 AM

    This is terrible.....hope the cop recovers......the leader (Ranil) should be held responsible for organizing such violent protest.....!!!

    Now all the participants will be remanded indefinitely.

    sham Thursday, 09 September 2010 05:11 AM

    I think police is wrong because
    When government doing something, they will come without weapons but, for opposition parties, they will come with weapons even they go peacefully....

    Babanis Thursday, 09 September 2010 05:16 AM

    Oh the poor cop! Should have put Ranil's collar on fire!

    malkanthi Thursday, 09 September 2010 05:33 AM

    Poor fellows doing only a job, even the boss is powerless!!

    hrm Thursday, 09 September 2010 05:39 AM

    that's very bad thing... since Police were doing what they ordered to do and it's their job.

    Channa M Thursday, 09 September 2010 06:06 AM

    For once we see a cop with the neck on fire and not the tail
