The Police launched an investigation into the incident where some young men and women had taken semi-nude photos and posted them on social media.
Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the Sigiriya Police had received a complaint on this matter and assured that legal action would be taken against the individuals in the pictures.
They had climbed the Pidurangala Rock which is in the vicinity of the Pidurangala Raja Maha Viharaya situated within in the historic Sigiriya triangle before taking the nude photos.

If Sigiriya can showcase semi nude ladies on walls what's wrong with a bum show?

Mr. Nutt, showing Sigiriya their private parts is an insult. Plus do you know the importance of Pidurangala?

Would police take legal actions against the traditional farmers who wear AMUDE, because it’s vulgar than these boys? Typical looser mentality

Seriously, the police needs to be engaged in more important issues such as curtailing the number of road deaths, maniac driving of buses and 3-wheelers than petty issues of this primitive nature.

There's nothing wrong with posting nudes, it's just that they shouldn't have taken it at a public space - even then it's not a problem as long as no one else saw them nude, in person.
