The three youths, who were remanded on charges of posting semi-naked photostaken on top of the Pidurangala Rock on social media, were warned and released by the Dambulla Magistrate today.
They were released on a fine of Rs.1, 500 each after they pledged guilty.
The youths, residents of Galewela, were arrested on September 26 after they surrendered to the Sigiriya Police. (Kanchana Kumara Ariyadasa)

NOW OUR FARMERS WILL START WEARING DENIM JEANS INSTEAD OF AMUDE.

Now each of them has a value on his Pidurangala.

With all respects to the Honourable Court, I wonder wether the cost incurred by the state in prosecuting them is worth all the bla bla. Hon PM too was concerned about it.

A very silly nation... on the same logic we should ban all farmers wearing amuday showing off their buttocks in paddy fields around A'pura, Sigiriya

Wearing a G-string on the beach or in a paddy field is not a punishable crime. But, revealing your private parts in public is an offence. This act is called "Mooning" in other countries. If a complaint is made of such an act, the person will be arrested.
