    Mr. I Hussein, you are 100% correct

    Bumba Monday, 20 June 2011 07:30 AM

    Maybe, maybe and maybe, the damage is done and justice served.

    nanda Monday, 20 June 2011 07:35 AM

    not really

    GanjaRabbit Monday, 20 June 2011 07:42 AM

    usually bus drivers and owners are so naive that violence is the only language they understand. that is the truth though the readers start acting all humane now.

    meranchi Monday, 20 June 2011 01:57 PM

    No reason to torch the bus driver must be punish ...i

    GanjaRabbit Monday, 20 June 2011 07:43 AM

    oh yes it cud have been the girl was walking without a licence.

    vin Monday, 20 June 2011 07:41 AM

    idiots, the bus will be fully insured and the owner will get a new bus.

    spark Monday, 20 June 2011 07:49 AM

    Typical justice of the animal kingdom.

    JayD Tuesday, 21 June 2011 07:53 PM

    why are some of you like kill the drive, beat the driver etc....it could have been the girl's fault as well, if she had ran onto the road without checking whether there's any vehicle approaching what can the bus driver do? its not always the motorists fault!!

    Konde Bendapuchhena Monday, 20 June 2011 07:58 AM

    quick Verdict

    KABAB Monday, 20 June 2011 07:56 AM

    Rolls & Royce also met with an accident. But no casulties. Still they joined hands and produced the world's most expensive car. Why can't others follow without burning properties etc.

    Sinnan Monday, 20 June 2011 07:59 AM

    This is the Value for human life in this Country

    Sinnan Monday, 20 June 2011 08:06 AM

    My sincere condolences for the little girl. Generally This is the value of human life in Sri Lanka

    Mahadana Mutta Monday, 20 June 2011 08:33 AM

    one million rupees again !!!!!!

    daham Tuesday, 21 June 2011 05:58 AM

    What would happen if a pedestrian is killed by a motorcade vehicle of a politician? Would they still burn the vehicle?..... No, then it will be the fault of the pedestrian....What a mad place.

    Roshan Monday, 20 June 2011 08:57 AM

    Rosh, this is a private Bus transporting Garment workers,not transporting public.

    ranfer Monday, 20 June 2011 09:02 AM

    if all of us act this manner another civil war is not that far...

    Chamara Monday, 20 June 2011 05:06 PM

    Foolish way of justice. Owner will get a new bus with Insurance
    money.

    ASFAR Tuesday, 21 June 2011 07:24 AM

    who knows who is at fault. be open minded. may god bless the child with heaven. pray for the child.

    Rosh Monday, 20 June 2011 10:01 AM

    Did you visit the place of the accident????

    Rosh Monday, 20 June 2011 06:06 AM

    This is why they want to increase the bus fares.

    Bumba Monday, 20 June 2011 06:04 AM

    The best form of justice.

    I Hussein Monday, 20 June 2011 06:15 AM

    This is the typical SL today.
    Sorry for the little girl who lost her life but will she get her life back? This bus maybe runing on a contract basis. Owner probably has got nothing to do with the accident. Maybe drivers fault maybe the child crossed heedlessly But the bus is gone. Tomorrow the workers will have a hard time finding transport.

    pol adi bandu Monday, 20 June 2011 06:16 AM

    Our Sinhala Modayas. No point burning the bus. They should have hammered the driver.

    shabba Tuesday, 21 June 2011 02:20 AM

    not the bus , the freak and sycho driver should have been burnt alive . They drive really mad . Think they are the road kings

    Pradeepk Monday, 20 June 2011 06:31 AM

    Arent we gonna find better ways to deal with things.

    pulasthi126 Tuesday, 21 June 2011 02:38 AM

    yea...they should hammer the driver..not the bus..but its fair..because it will be a future warning sign for the other bus drivers to drive carefully. we all know that those stupid drivers r road runners..stupid bunch of peoples who's not caing about the pedestrians in the road. so this is a good move generally.

    DHA Monday, 20 June 2011 06:46 AM

    Too much of accidents.......too much of careless drivers......

    Donkey Monday, 20 June 2011 06:53 AM

    If government not able to enforce tough laws , people should find a way. This is very good move. Human life is the first.

    DXB Monday, 20 June 2011 06:58 AM

    you are waht type of Modaya ? to say Hammer the driver without investigating the incident

    dinesh Monday, 20 June 2011 07:01 AM
