A group of 60 people, who in a drunken stupor had attempted to climb Adam’s peak with 15 bottles of arrack in their possession, were apprehended by the Nawalapitiya Police and were asked to kneel till they were sober.
The group believed to be from Polgahawela included a priest and individuals claiming to be from the army. The police had also directed the individuals to destroy the remaining bottles before allowing them to go with a stern warning.
punishment should be common to all no? so if a priest does the same thing, he too must get the same punishment!

Though it sound funny when we listen to the punishment. Poilice has no rights to give any punishment. If it is illegal to take alcohol with them, arrest them and produce at the court.

Is it illegal to climb Adam's peak after or with liquor? If they are smart a law suit should be in order.

For your information. Priest does not drink. A person who dress like a priest with a bottle is not so called a priest. So I just corrected an addressing error.

Yes, you sound like you are from the human rights. Or are you from Norway :P

Punishment is too light....

The Police have no right to punish the citizens what ever their crimes are. It is up to the court of law to do that. Nonethelsess, at a time that courts are giving verdicts that cannot be justified, this punishment seems fair. (Mage gon molete peane vidiyata)

Aiyo what a waste! The police should have first asked them to drink all the remaining liquor and then asked them kneel
