    IF it was a genuine "accident" they driver should have driven on to the next police station. THE SAD THING IS PEOPLE RESORT THESE TYPES OF VIOLENCE AS THEY LOSE FAITH IN THE LAW AN ORDER IN SRI LANKA.

    This is a very sad affair. It is right that the rowdy truck driver, who has himself posed to the police, was arrested. But it can not be that the crowd has taken the right into their own hands. This is jungle law. The police have stood idly when the truck was set on fire in front of the police station. The arsonist has still not been arrested.

    2 kinds of pedestrian in Sri Lanka, the quick and the dead.This is not good enough, too many dangerous drivers who think one hand on the horn gives them right of way.
