Two girls studying at two reputed girl’s schools in Colombo were found by the Maharagama police at a bus stand at around midnight on Wednesday. Police say they were wearing short skirts and T-shirts and appeared to be under the influence of liquor.

Police sources said that they had attended the birthday party and afterwards gone to the bus stand to board a bus to return home. The police had spotted them and taken them to the police station in order to protect them from rapists who were in the vicinity, police said.

On being questioned they had told the police that they had attended a friend’s birthday party held at a hotel in Maharagama. One student had sat for her O/L examination last year and the other was preparing to sit for the A/Ls next year.

Police said that the father of one student was a senior officer in the army and that she was not cared for by her mother; the father of the other one was dead, and her mother was an invalid.

Investigations are continuing at the direction of the OIC of the Maharagama police, inspector Senarath Diyakelinawala. (Bimal Shyaman Jayasinghe)

    Family bond and values are gone to dogs. Disputes between parents and the neglect of children are the main causes for the children to go astray. Parents do not have the time and space to counsel children as they are busy otherwise with their careers and socialising with their friends. What a sorry state of affairs. via DM iPad app

    Instead of teaching the society with family values and dignity, some so called religious groups make a big deal of petty issues and promote hatred. How foolish. via DM Android App

    Police knew rapists are in the vicinity. what did they do against them? What action did they take to remove such menace? via DM Android App

    it seems without any valid reasons Police has arrested these girls.

    How they know Rapist are around ? Should punish police officers involved in this. via DM Android App

    Instead of taking the girls to the police station they should have taken them to their homes which are said to be close by with some good advice not to be out so late. If then if would have been a civilized act by the police .
    What a shit work by the police to bring up the family situations to public . Uncivilized buggers .

    yes, agreed

    This is exactly what is going on now a days. How can the parents "correct" or "show" the children, when they are no better.

    Shantapriya, thanks for your comments. Now the circumstances are very clear. I hope the Police will be on the lookout to apprehend the rapists who are lurking in the area where the girls were taken in for questioning. They owe it to the society. via DM iPad app

    [quote name="Sean"]The police should have arrested the rapists not the girls. What a joke.[/quote]

    Yep.. a journalist should put the question to the police media spokesperson ans as the question " why didnt they arrest the rapists that was in the vicinity" ???

    Philip Friday, 07 March 2014 11:34 AM

    I would have thought that catching the rapists, who the police knew were in the area, would be more important than making moral judgements about these two girls.
    Even in Sri Lanka, sitting at a bus stop in T shirts and short skirts is not a crime.

    Sean Friday, 07 March 2014 05:13 PM

    The police should have arrested the rapists not the girls. What a joke.

    shanthapriya Friday, 07 March 2014 11:46 AM

    i know this incident. the girls home is just behind the bus halt
    on seeing them police vehicle began to pass them several times looking anxiously at them. when the girls showed their
    displeasure they were taken for questioning for making policemen crazy.

    Good job done by police. Thank you sirs. Let anyone make negative replies but you have done the correct thing according to the law, and for the safety of the children.

    surrounding should be safe for a girl to go out even at midnight ! and we all get drunk after a party ! that is not an issue via DM Android App

    J P Rajan Saturday, 08 March 2014 02:19 AM

    Rapist in the vicinity or the police officers were being rapist ?!!!

    Don't trust police . All crooks part of our problems .everything everyone set up . All have personnel agendas. Thanks to our politicians via DM iPad app

    The police knows the rapists so why not catch them. without waiting for someone to be raped.

    empulz Friday, 07 March 2014 07:17 PM

    It doesn't mention about arresting, says they were taken to the police in order to protect them from any harm that could have being caused if they were left alone, I'm no fan of police, but yes we should appreciate this as it has being done in good faith, try seeing the good picture as well. via DM Android App
