    Strange! Generally patients go to a hospital to cure themselves and escape death. Yet this particular patient had gone to a hospital to embrace death. Everything going in reverse gear now in this country.

    Chintanaya is working now in poor people's stomach.

    Have one nurse or attendant to look after each patient ,that will solve the unemployment problem. We already have
    one govt. servant for every 19 people which is a world record.

    Is this another lover of the UNP ?

    Aiyo Sirisena (Maithripala).

    Concerned Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:20 AM

    You mean to say the Colombo General hospital is a haunted place with no human being in that, so no body saw this person was trying to commit suicide?

    Nandimithra Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:27 AM

    And he will as usual give at least two versions for the death. That must have been his PhD thesis.

    Top Srilankan Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:40 AM

    HOW old was this patient, hope this is not a boy who was killed by a pedophile doctor

    CW Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:52 AM

    Before blaming others find the cause. Did we not have patients commiting suicide before?

    Wasantha Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:53 AM

    It is natural that every patient expects considerable attention while being in a hospital.Once disregard by the loved one or the doctors & nurses, poor guys would become frustrated and lasting relief is attained to death. We cannot see anything wrong in his action in a banana republic.

    kayesenar Tuesday, 27 July 2010 10:33 AM

    Who told you that he wrote a Ph.D. thesis. He has no dectorate degree.

    Ibnu Batuta Tuesday, 27 July 2010 10:42 AM

    Oh mother Lanka! what has happened to you...? All what we hear is negative.

    NN Tuesday, 27 July 2010 10:51 AM

    "The patient was found dead in the 23rd ward of the hospital with saline drips still pinned to his arms."

    Think it would have been very difficult for him to hang himself! Sounds like foul play!

    Kan Kuna Tuesday, 27 July 2010 11:44 AM

    He has been guarding a different ward.

    Kan Kuna Tuesday, 27 July 2010 11:57 AM

    Actually rate of suicide has come down. SL had the highest female suicide rate 10 years back. Now we are in the 10th place.

    citizen1 Tuesday, 27 July 2010 01:20 PM

    He should definitely be able to solve this one....his specialty being post-mortem prognosis!!

    citizen1 Tuesday, 27 July 2010 01:24 PM

    The moral of the story is: if you want to succeed in ending your life, you may visit either the hospital or the police station.

    citizen1 Tuesday, 27 July 2010 01:31 PM

    If he wanted to commit suicide, why do it in a hospital????
    And why a sheet? Why not some pills?

    meranchi Tuesday, 27 July 2010 02:10 PM

    what do you think those stupid thing also responsible health minister before you write comment must think common please Woodrow your comment

    bernard Tuesday, 27 July 2010 03:08 PM

    If you see the quality of service ( personal care, attention and compassion) given by the Doctors, Nurses and attendants in Colombo National Hospital towards poor patients, this is not a surprise.

    Anura W Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:21 AM

    No end for suicides even after defeating suicidal terrorism.

    Marikar Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:23 AM

    SriLanka no more the " Pearl Of The Indian Ocean. "
    NOW its the " Land Of Suicide ! "

    bugger Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:24 AM

    How in a over crowded ward ,with nurses,doctors,attendents patients etc? A case for our own super detective Dr. Mahinda Balasooriya

    local boy Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:34 AM

    are you conscious ?

    Farshard Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:44 AM

    lot of suicide now days fed up with new budget???

    ajith Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:49 AM

    Were the Nurses,attendants,doctors and the patients all sleeping during this time of suicide.
    Well,we need Sherlock Holmes to investigate the logical reasoning.
    Yet again a suicide just after a self immolation.
    Is the government forcing its citizen on a suicide mission????.
