The student of the Mahanama College, who had been arrested for forcibly entering Yashodara Balika Vidyalaya, was ordered to be sent yesterday to the Probationary and Child Care Centre in Makola until March 31 by the Hulftsdorp Magistrate’s Court.  

A spokesman for the Police said Police officers in civvies and uniform and the emergency Mobile Police Unit would be deployed in the vicinity of all girls’ schools within the Colombo City limits.

“Stern action will be taken against students who engage in such acts using the big match as an excuse,” he said.

The Police said the student was among several others, who had forcibly entered the girls’ school down Kinsey Road yesterday during a parade that was held in lieu of the big match to be held this weekend.

The rowdy students had not only frightened staff members but had also assaulted an employee of the school, according to the Police.

The Police said they were investigating the incident.(DS)

    Very simple punishment will stop this menace. Round them up get them to wear frocks in public and send them to girls schools with their parents dropping at girls schools gates.

    Students should learn to respect law and order from younger days. If Police to take preventive action, country may need 1000 times more cops. Police is there to round up wrong doers and then them to courts.

    From another angel, please check if JHU monk who oppose big match got a hand in this. Apparently there were some 'old boys' as well. You never know who these 'old boys' were. May be paid goons trying to prove that Omalpay was 'correct' You never know..

    Nothing wrong with big matches but authorities in charge must take steps to reduce the consumption of hard liquor at these matches. I know people who started drinking at these matches from grade 8 and are heavy drinkers now. This hampers the productivity of the country. via DM Android App

    Didn't know Mahanama had a "big match", was it against Yashodara Balika Vidyalaya??

    Citizen Wednesday, 22 March 2017 03:12 PM

    Big match or big match, law doesn't change. Throw the law book hard against these goons! Send a clear message to offenders to be, if not this will spread like a cancer.

    In Sri Lanka there is no law and order in any field.Siri

    Sound like a true snooty Royalist or a Thomian :-)

    Who does Mahanama play a big match with?

    aravinda Wednesday, 22 March 2017 04:05 PM

    Police should have taken preventive action before this incident. Now they are trying to close the gates of the stable after the horses have bolted.

    sobers Wednesday, 22 March 2017 04:10 PM

    They are following our political leaders, so nothing wrong.

    Dee Wednesday, 22 March 2017 04:18 PM

    The problem is that now each and every school wants to have a 'big match' even the ones that don't have a cricket ground. Similar to those who haven't travelled in a car wanting to buy cars.

    Don't forget two years back Royal boys also entered into the tow leading girl's schools . Later the principles of the Girls School told the police they had come to their school with the permission.

    They deserve corporal punishment. They are no more kids and its high time we contemplate about effective punishment to send a message. via DM Android App

    Independent Analyst Wednesday, 22 March 2017 05:08 PM

    Lets get the facts straight. Parents send children to school to study.Big Matches are played in Grounds and all concerned must be at the Venue- not on the roads and harassing innocent.If they are taught discipline when they're young-University Strikes want be there.Train all to be Law Abiding and decent.

    Kumar Wednesday, 22 March 2017 06:49 PM

    You are right ROYAL THOMIAN boys behave well because they are mainly from good families,sons of Lawyers,Judges,Civil Servents,Academics,etc.

    Thomas Ranger Wednesday, 22 March 2017 12:40 PM

    Boys will be boys, but these boys are utter 'scum' and must be given the severest of punishment. A clear message need to be sent across the country by lashing these rowdies' in public.

    shanthapriya Wednesday, 22 March 2017 12:44 PM

    These students must know that 90% of the girls who study in the vicinity schools are own sisters of the surrounding boys schools. they should be respected and treated as of their own sisters.we saw the big match parades of richmond mahinda, thurstan isipathana , Royal thomian and never heard of such a bad and inhuman news about them.behave well and do not tarnish the image of your alma matar
