Not surprised at all at the behavior of some of the passengers in the bus. The Police should have asked the passengers to stay inside the bus till the inquiry was over. Only the bus driver should have been questioned in this case as done in other countries. In any case the car was hit from behind and its obvious to anyone the bus driver was at fault. End of story.

Well said Thakshila. I agree with your comments on the ignorance, easily led and sheep mentality that seem to be prevalent in the Sri Lankan society. Specially like you say 60% or so of the population are literate and educated.

I am so happy to see a right thinking victimized citizen of our self serving society. I used to look at such social reactions in public placed and suffer in silence. You are great. You spoke it out in public. Hope and pray your writing will open eyes of many people

Thank you Thakshila to write such an article and make me understand the responsibility of a society.Your heading is really fantastic.It was very fortunete that you got a good silver line in the dark.Generally that too was dark in the case of poor
innocent people.Your so called silver line appeared because you know some legal matters,and the police officers would have predicted your position.But just imagine how it would had been if you are an innocent low medium class of people.
Thank you again.
