    These are not 'men'. They are animals. Police should take actions against even those who are watching the incident.

    In the world there are people who act like uncivilised barbarians who assault women just think she could be a wife, mother, daughter or sister or she could have some mental difficency. Think before you hurt any one. This act disturbed lot of people young and old.

    barbarians. Both who did this and witnessed it without standing up against it. Both are equally at guilt. One should speak up against injustice

    The Police should arrest the culprits immediately and sentence them for one year rigorous imprisonment. Does anyone know the reason for this barbaric act??

    Indian culture of barbarism imported to SRI LANKA by the previous regime; GAVAPALANAYA.

    You are exactly right, it's the Indian culture being imported to Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka sorry to say, the worst are the Police, who will take sides for money
