Three train engines at the Maradana Railway Yard had allegedly been damaged last evening by unidentified persons, Railways General Manager S.M. Abeywickrama said.

He said the damage had been noticed when the three engines were being moved out of the yard.

According to the information received by the GMR, the trains which were in running condition were found to be out of order. “I have requested a report on the damage. This may be an act of sabotage,” he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    obvious. get hold of the culprit. Maximum punishment by court of law.

    Striking for your rights is one thing. Damaging public property is another. Catch the culprits and punish them. Best is to recover the damages from them. It will hurt and teach them a good lesson.
