    Some people disrespect even a deceased person. We condole with the deceased lieutenant commander's family. May he attain Nibbana!

    What is the connection between these trio. Is it political religious or personal. nature of these characters are questionable.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 01:33 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:48 AM

    my heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased. please show respect to the navy officer who died in the lake. accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. even animals cry when someone passes away. these humans are not even close to the animals who make fun of the deceased. sorry. long way to see humans in sri lanka.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 02:11 AM

    When something happen for a person badly. Don't laugh

    It is very sad any my symapathies to the family. However, a naval officer drowning is suspicious.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 02:49 AM

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 06:23 PM

    Interesting combination,navy officer,priest and an actor.Two of them very shady characters.

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 06:32 PM

    Results of bad company !

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 02:57 AM

    Its sad to see people even making fun of the dead. Hope the deceased would get a better life in his next birth!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:27 AM

    It is indeed disappointing to note that most of the comments above are full of sarcasm. People seem to have lost their sence of sympathy & genuine concern towards others. You guys should be ashamed of your selves.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:00 AM

    what was a respectable navy officer doing with these type of characters at a tank bund ?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 06:19 AM

    My heartfelt condolence to the family members of the late .Navy Hero. May he Attain Nibbana.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 06:24 AM

    Guys, pls respect this fallen commander. Do not put harsh comments over a dead man.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:16 AM

    The million dollar question is how a naval officer got drowned??All naval officers are good swimmers.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:17 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:25 AM

    A sorrowful tragedy and not suitable accompany.

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 07:48 PM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 07:01 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:31 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 03:46 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:01 AM

    Commander of Navy can't even swim, this is Lanka for you

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 04:00 AM

    Is it ethical for a buddhist monk to go on holiday or swimming with laymen ?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 02:00 PM

    I totally agree. shame on you guys. Sarath Fonseka fought for this country for some fourty years. what is he getting now.

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 09:15 PM

    Either he went fishing, or the matter is altogether 'fishy.'

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 09:31 PM

    AFTER A FEW DRINKS, I WANTED TO SHOW THEM THAT I WAS A HERO ... I MESSED-UP MY 'DRAMA'!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:13 AM

    The disease is one my batch mate. He has fought for this country for 12 years. The cowards who are making these comments will not be able to write these unless we fought to liberate this country from terrorism. Shame on Daily mirror editorial board !. I know you are not going to put this comment. But shame on you.. this shows the upbringing of the people who selected thee comments .. loosers !!!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 04:14 AM

    My deepest condolences to his family...

    We do fail.though we are experts...It 's common to all..

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 04:24 PM

    How come a Navy officer couldn't swim in a lake. May be not enough water to swim.

    Is this one of Janckson's Drama?

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 10:29 PM

    This is a tragedy ... My condolences to the family ... We salute his contribution to our Naval force, during a critical period, in our country's history !

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 04:17 AM

    WITH ALL DUE RESPECT TO THE DECEASED OFFICER, I TOO WONDER WHY A NAVAL OFFICER COULD NOT SWIM.

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 11:03 PM

    Indeed - 'bad company' - Karma.
