A group of 41 students from Grade 10 and 11 including seven girls of a school in the Medirigiriya Educational Zone were found to have caused grievous injury to themselves after supposedly consuming drugs last morning, Medirigiriya Police said.

The Vice Principal of the school, having noticed a change in the behaviour of the students, had summoned them and found cuts on their hands and did not hesitate to call in the police.

The female students were handed over to their parents by the police who issued stern warnings to all of them.

While the students were being taken to the police station a student had attempted to get rid of a bottle, but the police who were alert managed to confiscate it. The police were still trying to ascertain from where or whom the students had got the drugs from.

Polonnaruwa SSP Laksiri Wijerathna, Hingurakgoda ASP Tissa Lal de Silva, Medirigiriya OIC IP N. G. S. Jayalath were heading the investigation. (Chapa Madhubashini)

    Please bring the capital punishment immediately to everybody involved in drug trafficking and some other grave crimes like Vithya case. Don't save the rights of a few criminals to remove the rights of the whole nation.

    We should appreciate the task of these police officers instead of always complaining against them.

    Are there any politician to say "boys will be boys"?? When drug dealers become Mps and Ministers, what else you can expect in the country?

    Its so sad to see the present school going generation so fearless of a school teacher / parents or principal, whereas in the good old days the fear or even talking back to our parents let alone a teach was great.

    Legalise drugs

    Reading this gave me goose bumps. It's so sad that children are victims to drugs. The govt needs to take drastic measures to stop this or it won't be long before we have a nation of teenage drug abusers.
