A lift given to a school-girl by a three-wheeler driver had landed him in a whole lot of trouble with her cousin and three of his pals.
The girl, who was approaching the main road from a side road was accosted by the three-wheel driver who asked if she was going to the main road. When she replied in the affirmative, he told her to get in as he was going that way. Upon getting in the 3-wheel driver began to question her about school, her home address etc. She had given him all the information he asked for. After they reached the main road she had got down and thanked him for his kindness in offering her a lift. He had reciprocated by giving her his phone number and took off after giving her a sign for her to call him.
Meanwhile, her cousin had got to know of the fact that a three-wheeler driver had offered her a lift and he had managed to get his hands on the paper with the phone number written on it. He had decided to teach this Romeo a good lesson and had hatched a plot with three of his friends to confront the man and take his revenge. He along with his friends had sent an SMS to the three-wheel driver pretending that it was sent by his cousin explaining that she wanted to meet him and naming the place where they could meet.
The 3-wheel driver swallowed the bait and arrived at the meeting spot only to be confronted by the girl's cousin and his three friends who beat him unmercifully, breaking one of his teeth in the process.
They were arrested by the Bandaragama Police.(B. S. Jayasinghe)

What they did to the 3-wheeler driver was super, at least it will teach all these rasthiadua's to avoid future stalking of innocent prey.

BuffaloaCitizen always criticizes Sri Lanka and advises us to take example from developed countries. I have news for you in Developed countries girls do accept phone numbers from total strangers but nobody gets beaten for it.

NOW I HAVE REALIZED, WHY SO MANY YOUNG THREE WHEELER DRIVERS DON'T HAVE AT LEAST ONE TOOTH.

How can they assault a man who naturally flirted with a girl who was endearing to him tacitly .The bloody girl should have been beaten by her parents . Because of these dirty girls , some young men become criminals by raping and killing , ultimately destroy their future. If the bitch had been serious enough , the man would have minded his business .

I don't see the crime behind offering a phone number or accepting it. Probably a naive kid.

Neither the driver nor the girl was at fault but the thugs. They should be punished for taking the law unto their handsNilame
