    but he will not understand that. this is a result of too much militarisation of civil affairs in the country.

    Bigfoot Friday, 06 April 2012 11:29 AM

    This is very common in Sri Lanka. Who care about human rights. In Sri Lanka it is my right.

    Ranjith Saturday, 07 April 2012 02:03 AM

    Police is still Investigating? If the boy is in hospital, why police can't arrest the So called Major? Very sad,in a APR scout camp, may be a foolish parent.

    Sadly violence has become SL culture now? Assault first, ask questions later!

    Sameen Jan Saturday, 07 April 2012 02:16 AM

    Why? What was the 'retired' man doing at the Jamboree, first arguinig with a a boy scout and then assaulting him?Absolutely and thoroughly disgraceful.
    The man should be 'respectfully' sent to jail

    Scouting is an esteemed movement which teaches discipline and moral values among many other things. In this case, the student as well as the Major are on the wrong side. Patience is the most important thing a person should learn to practice.

    Gamini Udagepola Friday, 06 April 2012 01:39 PM

    When there are some corrupted leaders, others fallow suit. Discipline must start from the top.

    gajan99 Friday, 06 April 2012 02:11 PM

    Student must learn to respect adults.

    An Officer but surely not a gentleman!

    Sundram Friday, 06 April 2012 02:22 PM

    Why are we addressing him "sir"..They get swollen headed because of these mentality by the common man

    steven Friday, 06 April 2012 03:04 PM

    Respect is something you earn and cannot be demanded!

    marasinhaz Friday, 06 April 2012 02:48 PM

    WELL SAID

    jamaldeen Sunday, 08 April 2012 08:49 AM

    Our country is dancing with the forces on their heads, thats why we are facing problems, after problems.

    What is the public doing so quiet?

    Fusion Friday, 06 April 2012 03:05 PM

    Riyazi-Dorking Friday, 06 April 2012 04:49 PM

    The scout should have "Be Prepared" for these kind of attacks !!
