A soldier had shot the mother, Father and a twenty one year old girl from Katugastota after the girl had rejected the soldier’s plea to enter into a relationship with her. The mother and daughter were found dead on admission to the Thittajjala hospital.

The soldier was also injured after he attempted to shoot the brother of the girl who had managed to disarm the soldier. The suspect is receiving treatment at the Kandy hospital. Kandy police are conducting further inquiries into the incident. (J.A.L.Jayasinghe)

    The government must do some serious work to educate soldiers fo their responsibilities.

    Robbery, ransome, killing etc how many times we hear about the involvement of someone from the forces.

    We all can see the results of some soldiers mobile viedo on channel 4 and what this country has to face ebcause of some actions by few.

    Wow, this soldier has an ultra-sensitive ego (hence, no self esteem).
    Imagine if we all go around shooting everyone who says 'no'...there will be no one left.

    Your a stupid idiot, what does training has to do with this? this is an isolated incident and nothing to do with the army as a whole. Go read mate, these are normal things when soldiers go back home after war.

    This is not a only incident, this is the second time it has happened. By say this is a normal thing, are you saying this is justifiable?

    Most of our soldiers need phsyciatric treatment for the trauma they have gone thru at the battle field, it happens all around the world. the government must arrange this.
