    who is this idiot? will he be declared doing nothing wrong by a UPFA disciplinary commission?

    Ruki Sunday, 26 September 2010 06:25 PM

    I watched "Suba saha Yasa" today at the Lionel Wendt. Just like in that, all of us are reduced to saying "Ehemai Maha Rajaneni".

    rosh Sunday, 26 September 2010 06:33 PM

    The rider should have mentiond about his connection to a Sri Lankan MP, so the Ralahami would probably understand that no need of a helmet as they dont have any HEADS to safeguard

    Hash Sunday, 26 September 2010 06:35 PM

    so much for the democracy

    Elaris Sunday, 26 September 2010 07:12 PM

    Please appoint MR chintanaya type commision and after few sittings exonerate the culprit, follwed by a transfer the sergent to Vanni. Long life to demo-crazy of Siri Lanka.

    Elaris Sunday, 26 September 2010 07:14 PM

    Dutugamunu was not on-call on this day.

    saman Monday, 27 September 2010 09:12 AM

    Ha good sense of humor ! But I am amazed to here MP's bro riding a bike but not a double cab or a white van !

    Vinod Sunday, 26 September 2010 07:52 PM

    Stupid Sergent... He should know Sri Lanka is all about connections...

    harry Sunday, 26 September 2010 08:46 PM

    IGP please show your authority and compassion towards this poor policeman and take the matter up with the higher authoriies so that justice is served.This is a challenge for you IGP. Knowing your actions in the past I very much doubt that you will fight for this poor policeman.

    raymond Sunday, 26 September 2010 09:15 PM

    Dutugemunu was not involved, it appears.

    kumara Sunday, 26 September 2010 09:40 PM

    The police should walk-out for 3 hours every day and perform a peaceful satyagraha. They should protest as they did when "doctor" tied an employee to a tree.

    Mervin Sunday, 26 September 2010 09:41 PM

    At first it was the media, then the Asst Commissioner of Inland Revenue, the Samurdhi Officer, now its a police officer..the list would obviously gain length with time, unless MR and the team learn to act swiftly and effectively.

    Sena Monday, 27 September 2010 09:35 AM

    Now president will call independent committee for probe like Mervin case.Then he will free of blame saying that was part of drama.This the demonstration to police to behave with public. What a drama is here.

    Wijebahu Sunday, 26 September 2010 09:56 PM

    Culprits will go home without any charges because all of them are Kings men. Sril lankan police is very much used to get a beeting from them. what happened to the men who assualted a DIG in Weerawansa's bogus hunger strike? nothing, not even charges were laid.

    John Sunday, 26 September 2010 11:22 PM

    There are many stories like this. DM or some media should keep the pressure up and follow it until justice is delivered or not. This will do some good for the country instead of just reporting the bad stuff and people not knowing what the final outcome is.

    kalpage Sunday, 26 September 2010 11:24 PM

    Honest man gets beaten dishonest thugs get rich and this is a Socilist Democratic country where are honest leaders , why don't religious leaders speak up ?

    lanka silva Sunday, 26 September 2010 11:46 PM

    HE will appoint a commission headed by IGP Mihi Sirsena and lawyers - verdict it;s was act - Drama- Sargent transferred to Wanni.......................

    vijayaraja Sunday, 26 September 2010 11:55 PM

    Hope it is not Hon. Mervyn Silva's brother.

    John Monday, 27 September 2010 12:21 AM

    There should be a special investigation unit unswerable only to the IGP/president and citizens commitees which have maximmum protection just to deal with political thuggery. There should be zero tolerance for political thugs and their affiliates who harass or defraud ordinary law abiding citizens.

    abc Monday, 27 September 2010 12:57 AM

    It is included in the 18th amendment.

    Katussa Monday, 27 September 2010 01:51 AM

    Probably led the charge!!!!

    E.T. Monday, 27 September 2010 01:58 AM

    No wonder the cops do their masters' bidding even if its unlawful.They are more scared of ministerial thugs than the underworld kind.Now if Rajapakse will punish these thugs he will be more popular with all and sundry. But even that little is asking for the moon.More to come folks, more to come!

    Ravi Seneviratne Monday, 27 September 2010 02:01 AM

    I did not hammer him, he got himself hammered volunterly.
    Ha, my foot ,MR will appoint a commision , verdict - well known in advance.

    idda Monday, 27 September 2010 02:02 AM

    This happens under every regimes. Even people give more preferential votes for unrully candidates at elections.

    Krishantha Monday, 27 September 2010 02:18 AM

    Law of the jungle prevails after the 18th amendment all over the Island. This is the beggining of a another End to Sri Lanka. You cannot blame Mahinda chintanaya for everything. Pls, Don't forget there were many supported same....

    Anver Monday, 27 September 2010 02:27 AM

    A taste of what is going to come tomorrow.

    chami Monday, 27 September 2010 02:54 AM

    These are according to our new Madmulana judicial system. we can expect lot more in the future.

    Tonto Monday, 27 September 2010 02:57 AM

    To the poor traffic cop. Heap with you sew, brother.

    D.P.Liyanage Monday, 27 September 2010 03:07 AM

    No laws practice for politicians in Sri Lanka. To whom may we blame

    Dee Monday, 27 September 2010 11:10 AM

    police - just let this pass. dont tread on dangerous ground.

    Ibnu Batuta Monday, 27 September 2010 11:23 AM

    DEMO-Crazy - of the politicians, for the politicians, by the politicians. Sri Lanka way.

    Citizen Monday, 27 September 2010 04:44 AM

    Come on Mr. IGP. You have condoned many of these and ignored most of them! But, now you have tasted the pudding yourself. What are you going to do? Without fearing that you will get hammered put your chest forward and act with vigour and vitality! Definitely, you should have the backing of the Secretary Defence in this connection!!! Go ahead.

    Oyage sudu kella Monday, 27 September 2010 04:54 AM

    Aiyo .... paavam SL Police !

    Taaro Monday, 27 September 2010 04:57 AM

    gamunu gamunu where are you?????

    Jayasiri Monday, 27 September 2010 11:49 AM

    Sargent asked for a bribe but he got a kick in the butt. That was the real truth.

    mata nikang hithuna Monday, 27 September 2010 05:23 AM

    who let the dogs out......

    suwimal Monday, 27 September 2010 05:25 AM

    Seems a case of "above the law". The king is above the law. Kings henchmen, therefore, are above the law as long as they have king's blessing.

    Bluff Bluff Monday, 27 September 2010 05:28 AM

    Well done. We can see how law, order and discipline are thriving in our motherland. What else do we need now?

    Smart Aleck Monday, 27 September 2010 05:40 AM

    But then who will be there to baton charge them?

    Smart Aleck Monday, 27 September 2010 05:42 AM

    At the end of the list will be the MPs themselves. When the citizens reach that point Sri Lanka will be a better place.

    Watchman Monday, 27 September 2010 06:01 AM

    Suba Anagat ayak!

    ajjak Monday, 27 September 2010 06:10 AM

    the police sargent must have told them to assault him. this is the latest trend when politicians run amock

    puranappu Monday, 27 September 2010 06:17 AM

    And also Sergent would say they all were acting the movie,
    Named "Suba Anagathayak"

    Katussa Monday, 27 September 2010 06:38 AM

    The IGP is probably in hiding, too scared to face the public outcry over this. The public is truly with this cop this time because he was doing his duty.

    citizen1 Monday, 27 September 2010 06:47 AM

    They are deaf and will haveto wait forever.

    Yehiya-Doha Monday, 27 September 2010 06:51 AM

    IGP no authority do a transfer a SP. Beruwala incident good example.Police mislead the story.No one is trust the police or state media.Poor IGP unable to do anything. fallen in the same Dr(PHD) list.

    Holman Monday, 27 September 2010 07:40 AM

    Why don't the Police protest these kind of activities ??

    dixon Monday, 27 September 2010 07:50 AM

    Is that MP from Puttalam district??

    aaaaaaaaaaaa Monday, 27 September 2010 08:01 AM


    Ranjan Sunday, 26 September 2010 02:28 PM

    Dem-o-carzy as per Mahinda Chintana. This is the real freedom to expect after the 18th amendment.

    Babanis Sunday, 26 September 2010 02:32 PM

    The way things will be in the near future. Suba Anagatayake!

    BACKTOOLDJOB Sunday, 26 September 2010 02:38 PM

    mahinda chinthana Sunday, 26 September 2010 02:54 PM

    suba anagathayak

    Nan Monday, 27 September 2010 08:13 AM

    I want to feel sorry for the cop. but all i hear in my head is 'Hondama wadey!'

    Zufar Sunday, 26 September 2010 03:26 PM

    Will our president talk about this at his US Visit?

    Babanis Sunday, 26 September 2010 03:30 PM

    It is better not to insult our great king Dutugamunu. Well there was no Kudugamunu.

    naz Sunday, 26 September 2010 03:49 PM

    Lets wait and see what the Mahinda supporters have got to say...

    Wasantha Sunday, 26 September 2010 03:52 PM

    A lawless Country. Unlike Samurdhi Officers did, against Dr, they cannot make a collective protest against the licensed thug (MP). Definitely, victim should be forced to settle the matter and see what would happen. And most probably verdict would be the respective policeman is guilty. We cannot expect "Justice" in a banana republic.

    matara kolla Sunday, 26 September 2010 03:53 PM

    Deplorable incident. MP should be fully accountable and if guilty should lose his seat for this criminal act.

    TP Sunday, 26 September 2010 04:11 PM

    We asked for it so bear it up

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 26 September 2010 04:16 PM

    Gang rule of the hooligans under the 18th amendment to make Sri Lanka the Debacle of Asia!

    podimalli Sunday, 26 September 2010 04:32 PM

    This MP should be executed as soon as possible

    Jayntha Sunday, 26 September 2010 04:54 PM

    Well done the Politician. We need more of your type. We are having a ball of a time in Kangaroo Justice. This country has two set sof laws. One for us and one for them. Suba Anagathayak WEVA.

    Lal Sunday, 26 September 2010 05:00 PM

    This way, the IGP will get hammered too if he does not toe the line. He knows that.
