An employee of a private radio station who had allegedly harassed Sri Lankan pop, R&B and Jazz singer Umaria Sinhawansa at a car park of the World Trade Centre in Colombo was ordered to appear before a Colombo Court on December 14.

The Colombo Fort Magistrate issued notice on Ramsey Jaynoor an employee attached to a private radio channel sequel to a complaint lodged by singer Umaria Sinhawansa. Making a complaint with the Children and Women Bureau of Fort police, the complainant informed that she participated in a television programme along with vocalist Bhathiya Jayakody that was held at a private television station. The complainant said when they were coming back to the car park around 11.00 pm on November 2 the suspect Ramsey Jaynoor had allegedly harassed her by obstructing her way and pulling her hand.  The singer complained the suspect disregarded the advice of the vocalist Bhathiya not to behave in that manner. The complainant further alleged that when she got into the car, the suspect prevented her from moving the vehicle. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    A narrow-minded racists comment, belongs in the gutter where it originated from.

    amanath, there must be mutual attraction and consent.

    Nodrog Thursday, 06 December 2012 11:31 AM

    Nigel, I'd like to think you're an educated person but your comment proves otherwise. The way a woman dresses is her prerogative and if a man cannot control his emotions then he's to blame. Its narrow-minded bigots like you that give men a bad name.

    Court should listen to the other side of the story as well.

    Nigel Thursday, 06 December 2012 08:02 AM

    True !!! Just look at the way she dresses it's no surprise that men think that they are easy... You can't blame the man :)

    The radio stations at WTC belong to the brother of a certain person - judging by that 'persons' behavior this is not at all a surprise.

    lobo I agree with you, guys should keep their fingers crossed and wait for ladies to do their thing.

    hawk eye Wednesday, 05 December 2012 03:14 PM

    Not surprising

    We all know how the upcoming singers and actresses behave. We all know how their boyfriends behave too.

    Baboon Thursday, 06 December 2012 05:06 AM

    Are these "singers"???????????

    Roshan Thursday, 06 December 2012 04:41 AM

    We know only one side of the story, let us listen to other side also. No one will behave like this unless something has happened

    Eye Hawk Thursday, 06 December 2012 04:40 AM

    Yes, I have to agree with you. Some comments here prove that point. There are people to justify harassment too !!!

    Eye Hawk Thursday, 06 December 2012 04:35 AM

    This is an idiotic comment by a total idiot. You cannot use such silly arguments to justify the actions of that fool. I am wondering if you were the one !

    Muthu Thursday, 06 December 2012 01:07 AM

    Lobo Wednesday, 05 December 2012 03:37 PM

    Lets not jump to conclusions. Bottom line is the guy had no right to harass her, irrespective of the circumstances.
