A Covid-19 infected person from Atulugama, Bandaragama has spat on the face of a PHI who attempted to transfer the patient for medical treatment, police said.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said when the area PHI had visited the inmate in order to transfer him to a treatment centre , he had refused to cooperate.

"At that time, the man had spat on the face of the PHI. The police has initiated an investigation into this incident. The charges against the person would be obstructing duties of a government officer," he said.

He said police will take stern action against such individuals. "If a person refuses treatment or PCR test, that particular person would be considered as a traitor. Therefore, police will take stern action against such persons, “ he said.

    It was not only obstructing legal duties, what about “ Spatting “. There should be a very serious punishment for this type of people.

    Lokka Thursday, 03 December 2020 10:46 AM

    Pl. give maximum possible punishment, including caning (කස කස පාර ) to this individual.

    DHA Thursday, 03 December 2020 10:49 AM

    Sadly this is the type of people we find in our country ! end of the day these are the guys who end up blaming GOV ! people need to cooperate in order to eradicate this virus....

    Desha Maani Thursday, 03 December 2020 10:50 AM

    Mmmm.. Refusing to conduct PCR test also becomes under the traitor catagory

    AMAL Thursday, 03 December 2020 12:18 PM

    Required behavior for a future politician, please provide immediate relief and or immunity for the Atalugama hero and initiate proceedings against the PHI, possibly fire him for doing his job.

    SODHA Thursday, 03 December 2020 12:26 PM

    Please take him yo Angoda

    Noname Thursday, 03 December 2020 12:43 PM

    He should be charged for attempted man slaughter. To attempt to infect another person with a deadly virus is murder.

    V. Samantha Matharaarachchi Thursday, 03 December 2020 12:55 PM

    U Ballek. Kill him.

    Lion Thursday, 03 December 2020 02:13 PM

    Please treat him with severe beating .(licence guti)

    Guy is truly illiterate, but why this grown-up man behaving unusually immature way,seems even never been to proper mosque, otherwise he has gone to sword mosque, he should be taught how to cooperate with government officials

    Sunil Thursday, 03 December 2020 03:24 PM

    Arrest him and take him to show some hidden weapons. That will be the end of the story.

    Jehan Thursday, 03 December 2020 04:13 PM

    There is two sides to the story, the newspaper’s these days are just waste of time.

    Gowri Thursday, 03 December 2020 05:13 PM

    Forces should encircle Atolugama, and allow them to volunteer to face RAT test for their good,if anyone not facing own, arrest him, forcibly do it and send to jail

    Rushgefaanu Thursday, 03 December 2020 06:28 PM

    This man's behavior is not different to a mad dog's actions,he should have to receive similar punishment as of mad dog

    Ranaweera Thursday, 03 December 2020 06:52 PM

    That person should be charged with attempted murder. He does not like hospital then the best place for him is the Prison. What a bunch of fools we gave in our country , thanks to the useless education, useless government teachers. They are responsible for not creating better persons for the society. The teachers don't even teach their subjects properly, that is why students have to spend another Rs 5000 a month (minimum) for tuition. Sad situation. Shame on you teachers.

    RU Thursday, 03 December 2020 06:56 PM

    Its quite shocking to see how many people are ok with extrajuicial killings, beatings torture etc. You may want it for the other but once that becomes the norms, it wont be long before it visits you.com So be careful what you wish for others.
