A 24-year old youth was pushed to death under a moving bus on the Kandy-Udawela Road yesterday following a dispute.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said that two groups of drunken men were travelling in a three wheeler and in a van had an argument on the road last evening. 

The youth in the van was pushed to death under an Udawela-bound bus when the dispute culminated.

    What safety and security has the regime which used it as an election slogan , achieved so far ? Murder , theft , drugs are rampant and yet all we get is big talk from the defense secretary who is now busy designing uniforms for retired military personnel ..

    What is the use of having "Pirith and Bana" all day on a full moon day, if this is the result. Yes, Nandasena has failed and so have we.

    Why the bus was taken in to custody? Release it after the statement from the driver and passenger. We need buses for public transport.

    Only in Sri Lanka do they take buses into custody. Lol

    Disgusting comments by some blaming individual crimes on the government. These crimes happen in all countries because some people are still having the animal mindset. Remember, being associated with any religion does not mean that everything following that religion are same. Safety for the country means that safety from mass terrorist attacks.

    "Safety for the country means that safety from mass terrorist attacks". Well understand what you are saying Sir. Safety does not include false charges and assault from the SL Police on Law students excluding off springs of Ex-Provincial Governors. Others are meat in the sandwich to be used. Depraved and idiotic action of the police in detaining the Bus and not those men involved in the drunken spree on a Poya day (Not following abstinence in a Buddhist country). This has nothing to criticise the Religion. It's beyond religion and about Police partisanship and stupidity.

    Kindly RELEASE the Bus please cause the driver is very innocent.
