Police said today that they had informed the woman who was allegedly assaulted by a policeman at the Ratnapura Bus Stand to come to the police and make a statement so that she could be referred to a medical check up and to provide details to the courts.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said two teams were investigating the incident. One team is investigating to take necessary disciplinary action against the police sergeant.

Seven statements had been taken about the policeman’s behaviour and some 15 statements have been recorded from a monk, a group of trishaw drivers and others who witnessed the incident.

“We have found that the incident took place on September 6 at 3.00 pm,” he noted.

“The IGP or any police officer does not approve such assaults and incidents so we will take necessary action against him and that is why we interdicted him,” SSP Rohana said.

Police Headquarters interdicted the Police Sergeant on September 29 after the video went viral on the internet two weeks ago. (Supun Dias and Sanath Desmond)

    Shock, horror at the police assaulting anybody, let alone a young lady in the middle of the road with a stick. In the developed countries in the West, it is deemed illegal to even discipline your own child with beatings .We still have a lot to learn before we can call ourselves civilised.
