Twelve women arrested on charges of having run a brothel under the guise of an Ayurvedic massage parlour at Deanston Place in Kollupitiya were remanded till February 15 by a Colombo Court today.

The twelve suspects were arrested on Sunday (12), by  the Kollupitiya Police on a search warrant issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate. The Kollupitiya Police alleged that the first suspect, the female manager of the so-called massage parlour had allegedly operated the brothel under the guise of a massage parlour. The other eleven suspects were arrested on charges of having aided and abetted the illegitimate operation.

The Kollupitiya Police submitted in court that the police officer who carried out the raid had to pay Rs.3,000 to buy a woman.

Defence Counsel Ajith Pathirana, Madura Welgama and Deemani Beddewela who appeared on behalf of the suspects denied allegations levelled against their clients and maintained that the house in question was an ayurvedic massage centre with a valid permit.

Having considered the submissions, Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne ordered  the twelve suspects to be remanded till February 15. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    Like food sexual pleasure is a basic requirement of all living beings including humans. Hence authorities should some how find a solution to stop getting sexual feelings of all Sri Lankans by way of a compulsory injection or a tablet, that will automatically close down all these places!

    Why not have a RED LIGHT area in Colombo?
    This will solve the Issue.
    This is a natural need for any Human-being.
    It does not cause any harm, provided both parties agree on the Act!

    Good comment.

    Why not have a white van zone also?

    Roger Tuesday, 14 February 2012 06:12 PM

    I bet the cops didn't get their freebies any more. That is why they raided it while abductions in White Vans continue in broad daylight.

    Police so good at nabbing prostitutes but murderers, rapist, rogues roam freely.

    sukiri Tuesday, 14 February 2012 02:43 AM

    Aiyo not another...

    Sarah Tuesday, 14 February 2012 02:59 AM

    About time all parlours are checked. This is pathetic

    asoka abeywardena Tuesday, 14 February 2012 03:54 AM

    this raid was carried out because the police officer had to pay rs. 3000 to take the woman...if the woman was given free no raid...is that you want to say...?

    A W Abdulkany Tuesday, 14 February 2012 04:21 AM

    Another social problem. Chronic poverty sometimes leads women from villages to come to urban areas and become victims of greedy men and women and forced to engage in prostitution. Remanding them is the ANSWER, but what is the SOLUTION. Under the law prostitution is illegal, but absolute poverty will not respect legality. Arresting them and remanding them cannot be consiered as an act of heroism. But what about the men who patronise them? they go scot free. Pleasure without responsibility.

    Will massage prices also go up???????? io...............

    Kangarro Tuesday, 14 February 2012 04:21 AM

    This is so foolish and I totally disagree with this. This is the only way to relax on the current situation and this doesn't harm anyone at all . why don't you check on other more important things like drug dealers, people who create violence etc.

    sam Tuesday, 14 February 2012 05:13 AM

    Aparade I didnt know that this place was there.....Anga ridenawa hondatama massage ekak onemai dan nam ...hik hik

    Shazly Tuesday, 14 February 2012 05:25 AM

    Awesome....this is what the government needs to do now, as we have eliminated the terror threatening the sovereignty, its is vital to eliminate the terror.. threatening the younger generation...
