Thilini Amalka, who was allegedly harassed by a man at the Wariyapola bus stand prompting her to slap him –- the video of which went viral on the internet -- was summoned to the Kurunegala Police Station yesterday to record her statement on her complaint.

Rights Now Executive Director Sudharshana Gunawardena told Daily Mirror that Thilini was summoned to Kuurunegala Senior Superintendent (SSP) office yesterday.

He said the police should have acted upon her complaint in the first place without arresting her on the complaint made by the man who harassed her.

“The Children and Women’s Bureau faxed the complaint to the Wariyapola Police but no action was taken. Now the matter has been aken up by the Kurunegala Police. This should have been handled by Wariyapola Police,” Mr. Gunawardene said.(Chathushika Wijeyesinghe)

    I dont think so... because if somebody is threatened it is legal to an extent to protect themselves, and harresmant even verbal is an offence. And she cant wait until the police come and tolerate the abuse or harresment. SL is still a masculine society and accepts and tolerates such mischives from men as normal.

    It would be a travesty of justice if this young lady is not charged with assaulting a person. If the crime was harassment, we have the police to deal with them and she is not entitled to take the law into her own hands.

    This girl deserves admiration for her guts to deal with a sick pervert.
