Three cadets of a boys’ school, who had stripped six cadets of another school naked and video recorded them at the National Cadet Corps Training Centre in Rantembe, were arrested by Hasalaka Police yesterday.

The three cadets had tied the six cadets up after stripping them naked and had proceeded to video record them thereafter.

The incident had been brought to the attention of the principal of the victimized students’ school, who took immediate action to lodge a complaint to the Wattegama Police who arrested the perpetrators and handed them over to the Hasalaka Police.

They were produced before the Mahiyangana Magistrate who released the three suspects on a surety bail of Rs.100, 000 each and ordered them to appear in court again on July 3. (J A L Jayasinghe)

    I think sexual assault in Cadet Corps is a tradition in Sri Lanka. When I took part in the Cadet Corp camp in mid 1970s, some of our Cadets from Royal were sexually assaulted by our seniors and Sergeants from other schools. I still remeber one Cadet who was very upset and cried during the assault. He died of lukemia few years later. We didn't complained to authorities or tell our parents. Even after 40 years, I feel bas when I think about this incident.I commend these cadets for their courage to bring the culprits to book.

    Punishment should be deterrent to other schools cadets as well as higher studies institutions

    Why were they given bail? Should have sent to prison to get the same treatment.

    Cadets are the ones supposed to maintain higher level of discipline. They must be summoned before a court martial for bad discipline

    IF WE ARE TO DISCIPLINE THE CITIZENS, WE WILL HAVE TO FIRST STOP FREE EDUCATION SO THAT THEY WILL BE FORCED TO UNDERGO PROPER TRAINING FROM THEIR YOUNG DAYS. NOW THEIR BEHAVIOR IS MOST UNBECOMING

    absurd to give bail . At least keep them for 1 wk

    Sincere Thursday, 02 March 2017 11:40 AM

    Or is it punishment should be different depending on the school?

    Such a hurry to grant bail Did the police already search the suspects cameras phones computers.. etc for evidence via DM Android App
