    Anybody could complain against anybody. Arresting a person just because such a complaint made is not a thing we could approve in the democratic world today. In this way no Sri lankan is safe and cannot go about without fear like in terror days.
    Will any lady give Rs 1.0 Million to the intended bridegroom?

    vERY fUNNY INDEED
    If I say I gave Rs 1 MILLION TO rw TO LOOSE THE ELECTION CAN YOU ARREST HIM

    Nath Friday, 15 October 2010 05:29 PM

    Why not arrest all the politicians for defrauding the voters, breaking promises etc.

    There is jealousy on more than one level.

    izy Friday, 15 October 2010 05:58 PM

    The TEACHER should be sent to jail coz she was that gullible and will NOT be a good example to her students.I pity her students.

    And in Thilanga Sumathipala's case

    wickremasinghe Dilip Friday, 15 October 2010 08:41 PM

    The comments by some of readers,give enough reasons for the rest of the world to call us third world countries.Some people in Sri Lanka still says that their blood is green.It is a shame,if any person dose some good for the country we all should appriciate ,or otherwise we should condem.If our legal system condems a person for his or her crimes we should learn to be satisfied,insted of his party politics.If Mr.Ranjan is innocent he will be free.So dear reader, do not try to make political gains on these isseues.As a buddhist I belive in action and reaction.
    Dilip.

    It is possible she has a crush on Ranjan and had high hopes of marrying him but Ranjan wasn't serious about marriage. She was disappointed and decided to defame him by this false allegation. Truth will come out at the end.
    Until then it's a one sided story.

    Mohan Bandara Saturday, 16 October 2010 12:55 AM

    Ranjan - just hold on they want you to cross but you will be a hero in the future for sure.

    Katussa Saturday, 16 October 2010 03:38 AM

    Food for thought. This whole episode stinks to high heaven of MR!

    ND Saturday, 16 October 2010 04:10 AM

    Even if he did defraud a woman, your advice stands?

    Wijebahu Saturday, 16 October 2010 04:50 AM

    No teacher will be in remand.

    Ananda Herath Saturday, 16 October 2010 05:39 AM

    Well said. There is nothing political here. Ranjan has got into some personal trouble.

    ajith Saturday, 16 October 2010 06:00 AM

    ajith Saturday, 16 October 2010 06:01 AM

    One shot is given a putt shot.

    SID Saturday, 16 October 2010 07:10 AM

    Another one to join the GOSL. Case will be so dragged that he will have no choice but to join the GOSL to stay out of prison.

    izy Saturday, 16 October 2010 07:53 AM

    and....... if its proved as a botched up charge, he should counter sue her for defamation of character and send her to jail so others take a lesson from it.

    mike Saturday, 16 October 2010 08:30 AM

    Hawk Eye Friday, 15 October 2010 08:48 AM

    One million in cash or cheque.!

    Gayan Samarasekara Friday, 15 October 2010 08:50 AM

    Can this allegation be real??? or, is law applicable to strong opposition MPs only?

    immysl Friday, 15 October 2010 08:52 AM

    Time to be "One Shot" in real life?

    Ajith Friday, 15 October 2010 08:52 AM

    daham Friday, 15 October 2010 08:57 AM

    Persons who are in glass cages shouldn't throw stones at others

    chryshan K Friday, 15 October 2010 09:03 AM

    Only few more opposition members left to be remanded. Dont worry Govt will find reasons for the rest who does'nt fall in line with them.

    aruna Friday, 15 October 2010 09:05 AM

    Another High Jump.????

    A Sri Lankan Friday, 15 October 2010 09:05 AM

    All opposition MPs with broken love affairs and extra marital affairs, be aware.....................

    FAYAD m Friday, 15 October 2010 09:06 AM

    i feel sorry for ranjan he would have supported 18 th amendment ..............like so many others ....

    Chindesha Friday, 15 October 2010 09:09 AM

    Why don't you marry her ?

    nishan Friday, 15 October 2010 09:18 AM

    If he has crossed over to Govt, ....CID will dismiss the case as they did to Mr. Duminda Silva....Miracle of Asia.....

    Gane Friday, 15 October 2010 09:20 AM

    Woow!! what a wise person!! As he says it is purely non political action taken by police.(like they did in Mervins case)

    hp Friday, 15 October 2010 08:44 AM

    Now this will bring all UNP and JVP's to streets.They will demand to relese this one shot.may go futher and accuse MR.

    malkanthi Friday, 15 October 2010 09:34 AM

    The best way to avoid such allegations in the future is, ranjan should get married. Ranjan is one politico with excellent character, integrity and bold. No wonder many enemies!!

    kel Friday, 15 October 2010 09:45 AM

    ranjan if you joine with govermant today tommorow
    you are out of jail and this teacher will withdraw the case
    i am sure

    gil bola Friday, 15 October 2010 09:48 AM

    for the argument sake, public servants are exempted from tax in Sri Lanka.

    Karu Friday, 15 October 2010 09:52 AM

    Good bye to the one million Dowry.

    chryshan K Friday, 15 October 2010 09:53 AM

    Recently during an interview he insulted the catholic church. I knew a miracle will follow.

    Deshan Lankaputhra Friday, 15 October 2010 09:53 AM

    Don't compare this issue with politics.This is a broken promise given by Ranjan.

    Gayan Samarasekara Friday, 15 October 2010 10:21 AM

    And in Duminda Silva's case

    Damen Friday, 15 October 2010 11:15 AM

    I am fed up of these men. Find me also a woman who can lend me Rs. 1 Mn.

    Dishanthi Friday, 15 October 2010 11:24 AM

    Don't you think that Ranjan has enough money. Why does he require just one million Rupees to marry someone ? Ten million is more his range I think. The total story sounds fishy.

    Channa Friday, 15 October 2010 11:24 AM

    Before he sold the Duty Fee Car Permit Now this....interesting

    musnad Friday, 15 October 2010 12:25 PM

    if so all the politicians should be arrested for breaking promises
