Two men aged between 45 and 50 were arrested on charges of having engaged in acts of indecency while riding on a swan boat in the Beira Lake. They were produced in the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court and after being found guilty of the charges were each fined Rs.2, 500.
The arrests were made by the Slave Island Police after they were tipped off by an anonymous caller.
The Police told Magistrate Thilina Gamage that the two men were under the influence of liquor and behaving in an indecent manner and was a cause of embarrassment to those including families with children riding on other boats.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

A fine of 2500 is not enough I believe 25000 wouldve been better for idiots like this. via DM iPad app

This amount of fine is too low for such idiots.

These are simple now, common everywhere. I wouldent be suprised if it was a nude act.

You might have to arrest or chase away the couples in and around that area as well for their extremely indecent activities leave alone the behavior. Eradicate this menace for and on behalf of the families who come over to spend a relaxed time and it is embarassing too. via DM iPad app
