    Please promote correct wearing of masks. Good that people are wearing masks, but if mask is worn exposing the mouth and nose, it is same as not wearing a mask.

    This is called a - " Leader " - No Starts but - He won the hearts and minds of the people ( Charismatic leader ) - You do not need to get MBA from a well-known uni to be a leader - Leadership is born and not made

    What a gesture. Hats off to you dear sir, have a good retirement life. These officers should get commendation from higher authorities with added benefits to salary as well. We have only few officers in the whole police service.

    WE need more like the retiree and more like those who felicitated him.

    If he is popular, can not be a good officer.

    Its policemen like this who need to be recognized and promoted to higher positions within the force. Not assigned by political parties. Best wishes dear officer Chandralal Silva

    This is how our communities should live together. We should respect each other and exchange gratitude. An exemplary police officer. These are the type of people we need as politicians too. But one thing I see in recent photos is that people have forgotten that deadly Corona virus is still out there and just one person is enough to spread it. So guys please exercise caution.

    It's nice to be recognized and appreciated his services by the community on his retirement which means he must have served the community unbiasedly. This is a great example for all sectors individuals. Enjoy your retirement!!!

    Well done Sergeant! You an example of humanity and bright shinning light to the rest of us! Such a heart warming story and credit to the Police Department of Sri Lanka.

    Can all the Police Officers in this country from the very top to the very bottom honestly say they served the nation like this Police Sargent? We wish you all the best for your future Respected Sir.
