    OH JESUS ...... IF I WAS HIS FATHER WHAT WOULD BE MY FEELING ?

    Unimaginable, but being a product of an A grade Colombo school, one can just imagine how these bots behave traveling in trains. He probably had a couple or more of his pals who must have been playing truant in the train. Poor young soul, may he rest in peace.

    its not the discipline factor of the boy here ..What safety measures does the SrIlankan Railway offers to their commuters for safe traveling and other passengers not traumatised with having to witness such sad happenings ..Automatic controlled doors or even manual lock control doors of the past ?
