    What madness, he is the main culprit for this culture.

    There are no VIPs in Sri Lanka. These are con

    That is the only thing that makes them look important, otherwise they are basically uneducated yakko monkeys dressed in white.

    Why do ministers still have backup vehicles after 3 years of peace, that should be the question.

    Sanga Friday, 19 October 2012 09:42 AM

    Why do they need protection and convoy NOW????? The war is OVER; if they are ministers of the people, they don't have to worry about people attacking them!

    aja Friday, 19 October 2012 09:57 AM

    the students will be arrested? ???????

    Basith Friday, 19 October 2012 12:00 AM

    The students do not remember what happened. They simply have knocked down to a tree and accidently thought that it was a jeep. LOL! via DM Android App

    Misusing people's mandate !
    In foreign countries, even Prime Ministers use public transport. Here, our people's representatives and their sons behaving like alien came from outer planet. This is not the first incident. If we dont make a noise today, they will knocked down more innocent people on the roads tomorrow.

    rosh Friday, 19 October 2012 10:19 AM

    Not sure, but I hope he will be RIP soon

    Siripala Friday, 19 October 2012 10:22 AM

    This scenario is very well understood by the president according to his recent remarks on the same subject. Why can't he stop this highway killers?

    Lobo Friday, 19 October 2012 10:40 AM

    rashan, SL is their playground and we are intruders liable to be run over, knocked and killed if we dare get in their way.

    buffaloa citizen Friday, 19 October 2012 10:32 AM

    Can you ask a criminal to advise other criminals not be criminal?

    Shace-UK Friday, 19 October 2012 10:45 AM

    There will be an inquiry....outcome will be the students shouldnt be there at the time of the accident they were suppose to be in school. a warning will be given to the student for being in the wrong place at the wrong time...the driver will be released without charges so he can run over few more citizens in banana island!!!!

    AP Friday, 19 October 2012 11:08 AM

    Why can't media atleast mention who the VIP was??If an ordinary person does something wrong ,media publish the name with out hesitation.But media too have double standards when it comes to politician.

    JOHN Friday, 19 October 2012 11:00 AM

    IT IS FASHION. THEY WANT TO SHOWOFF

    Kulathilaka Friday, 19 October 2012 11:15 AM

    What a shame, Still some of our citizens in a day dream. Dear citizens who still support this gang and believe when you guys realize true color of this regime. We are really sorry for you.

    Yes Mr. defence secretary. you are the only ONE that can stop this menace. Please intervene and clean this culture of bloody back-up vehicles, just like you beautify Colombo city.

    Ruwan Friday, 19 October 2012 11:37 AM

    If this happens to my children, I know how to stop these politicians. These politicians and their bodyguards have not learnt a good lesson. That is their problem.

    Ruwan Friday, 19 October 2012 11:47 AM

    Tomorrow the two students will tell they knocked themselves and after that they both will be arrested. That is the law of the country. The two students will tell they cannot remember anything.

    Why use back up vehicles when the terrorism is over.

    Minister Boss has to give instruction to drive slow. There was an enemy but now we are the enemies and they do nt care

    Aks Friday, 19 October 2012 12:17 PM

    What the hell is this??? If it was a Ministers Bacxkup vehicle that injured the 2 boys, then the Minister is responsible and HE should be arrested...

    If I can hang that bugger I'd do it. Hate him so much!

    rosh Saturday, 20 October 2012 02:48 AM

    Vernon Saturday, 20 October 2012 02:57 AM

    Only the culprit can change it also

    channa Friday, 19 October 2012 12:44 PM

    This has nothing to do with your hatred because of the defeat of LTTE. Please go and bark elsewhere.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 19 October 2012 01:13 PM

    This is the miracle of Asia where the students run towards the wayward vehicle at high speed, to cause hurt to themselves. Ofcourse this is not the first it is one of countless where some have even killed themselves. We must be grateful for the number of Ministers and Deputies and their escorts that provide us with oportunities to hurt ourselves or even kill ourselves.

    hks Friday, 19 October 2012 02:48 PM

    WAIT AND SEE..... ULTIMATELY THOSE TWO INNOCENT STUDENTS WILL BE FOUND GUILTY!!!

    Iranga Friday, 19 October 2012 08:45 AM

    DHA Friday, 19 October 2012 08:37 AM

    I don't know whats the point why these Ministerial vehicles had to go this fast.......now that there is no threat to their lives......

    Impartial Guy Friday, 19 October 2012 08:45 AM

    In Sri Lanka,VIPs are free to do anything. Sri Lanka is their estate and within the estate they can do whatever they want.

    Farzan Friday, 19 October 2012 03:35 PM

    Most of these so called VIPs are peoples with O/L or even below that O/L. These peoples are only cost to the country. Why this useless fellow wanted to go such a speed?

    ANTON Friday, 19 October 2012 08:46 AM

    Vehicle did not hit students, they hit themselves.

    Minister Friday, 19 October 2012 08:49 AM

    The minister is the culprit and not the driver of the defender. Arrest him. Wishing GET-WELL-SOON for those innocent students.

    Minister Friday, 19 October 2012 08:52 AM

    There is a possibility of arresting the students on the charges of obstructing an honourable Minister of the general public and his convoy.

    Nadi Friday, 19 October 2012 08:52 AM

    Used to intimidate and lord it over the suffering masses.

    RF Friday, 19 October 2012 09:00 AM

    As always they are a threat to our lives.
