    Even when they go on such trips at the expense of the tax payers

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:11 AM

    Mr Traffic Cop!! Is "Loving" a traffic offence? I don't see any misbehavior in the pictures.

    ANTON Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:13 AM

    AND JEALOUS BECAUSE HE DOES NOT HAVE A GIRL FRIEND.

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:12 AM

    Frustrated cops

    Amila.G Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:13 AM

    That Policeman likes Boy Boy no girl boy.

    Amila.G Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:14 AM

    He is taking revenge because he is unmarried.

    kamal Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:15 AM

    I am sure thats what this guy will be having in mind..pure hatred and revenge....

    Andrew Pitugala Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:14 AM

    Lakshantha, he has got back bone to chase lovers.
    Put him where Keheliya's "boys will be boys" action,
    his "back bone" will melt into jelly.

    Amila.G Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:17 AM

    This Country is only for the Politicians .

    Saman Wednesday, 08 May 2013 01:09 PM

    first they need to think about education ,,,

    Roshan Wednesday, 08 May 2013 04:06 AM

    Ascharya!

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:20 AM

    The cops behave like heros when confronting innocent people like this couple but their chiefs bend backwards to salute criminals,

    Dammika Tuesday, 07 May 2013 03:18 PM

    Where is this rule ... in which law book

    dava Wednesday, 08 May 2013 04:13 AM

    Put up a sign board:

    "Strictly Prohibited for LOVERS"

    This country no more promote love but hate.....

    lovesri Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:23 AM

    Overtaking at the wrong place

    Nodrog Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:26 AM

    Never knew it was an offence to sit on the beach with a friend. Lucky for the cop the couple were not 'connected' otherwise he would have been the one being chased away.

    bandula Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:32 AM

    Traffic or terrific police? Is this not violation of Human rights?

    brownwardhana Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:35 AM

    officer, did anyone breach the beach traffic law ??

    ANTON Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:36 AM

    FOR OBSTRUCTING SHIPS I SUPPOSE.

    ud Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:37 AM

    hehe whats dailymirror doing there

    luvi Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:38 AM

    the criteria is that as long as you behave decently it should be fine cos there will be families with little children who will be enjoying the beach...instead of chasing them off you catch couples who behave indecently and punish them accordingly as per the law.

    public Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:46 AM

    be happy at least the cops got something to do..............

    Yehiya Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:46 AM

    What is the offence?Police don't know the freedom rights.

    Koridtuwakkuarachchi Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:48 AM

    This is a very good move and should be implemented all around Sri Lanka. I am sure every parent of small children will feel the same.

    janak Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:53 AM

    DRUGS CAN SELL ON THE BEACH THEN POLICEMEN SLEEPING

    rif Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:38 AM

    There is no other duty for police? HOOOOOOOO

    Pathi Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:56 AM

    Driving a vehicle without a valid license!

    Fair N Square Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:41 AM

    What the hell? They have a right to be at the beach, as long as they behave. Why the "TRAFFIC COPS" more worried about ppl being at a beach than be worried about traffic and related incidents.
    If i was one of them I'd have asked the TRAFFIC cop, what right he had to ask me to leave... what a wonder of Asia. ppl are being policed in every department, while religious fanatics go un-noticed. Shame on the POLICE as a whole.

    Sri Lankan Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:58 AM

    Wonder what the cops who guard miinisters boys do when they mis behave ??? Nothing na ??? this is why this country appears to be heading towards doom even without a war...

    Minister Tuesday, 07 May 2013 11:02 AM

    Aney ape ratata giya kalak!! Innocents do not have a place even to talk freely. But big wigs to whom police salute can do whatever they want in night clubs!

    Tintin Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:46 AM

    He's bitten by some bug and caught 'uniform fever' look at him! Must be 21+ yrs old at the most. Big attitude problem with cell phone and all!

    dhammika Tuesday, 07 May 2013 11:04 AM

    Bloody police state!

    ranil Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:47 AM

    the reson behaind is they are not politicians children ??
    can he if the connected to any politician ?

    Tissamaharama Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:48 AM

    Lovers who go on a cruise trips have no such problems to grapple with!!

    nalaka Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:50 AM

    police must be shame full for this action and MUST apologize to the public soon.

    Fayad Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:52 AM

    what the traffic offence ???

    Anil Tuesday, 07 May 2013 11:13 AM

    This is the mindset of these old good for nothing public servants, politicos - they build something with public money and they ban it for public. where the hell we should go?? out of this shit country???

    Anil.

    Lankashantha Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:52 AM

    Ok, this police got backbone.

    Karunka Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:54 AM

    This distressed, envious and mad policeman should be brought before the bench and punished severely for his indecent act. I have my own experience and have seen many a this kind of policemen in Sri Lanka. Please do not cover up this desperate PC with false and freak security reasons.

    asoka Wednesday, 08 May 2013 03:10 AM

    it is a traffic offence for a passenger to hold the gear shaft...

    asanka Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:56 AM

    you have forgetting all other duties ! you are salient when powerful people doing anything wrong and now innocent people do not have a place to chat even !

    Pali Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:56 AM

    Is Sri Lanka already under some sort of sharia law?

    Jay Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:57 AM

    Some are talking about western powers who want to take over Sri Lanka, some say Tamil diaspora want to do and some say Muslims, India or China etc. But I say if poor Sri Lankans are not free to at least sit near a beach what country we are talking about!!

    Nimal Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:56 AM

    look at the police man.........even that girl will beat him up alone

    ANTON Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:59 AM

    IF YOU ARE BORN IN LANKA, DON'T EVEN THINK OF LOVE, THINK OF HATE AND REVENGE.

    warra Tuesday, 07 May 2013 10:47 PM
