    Gender reassignment by POL.

    Apart from the interdiction of the concerned officers the victim should claim 25 million from each of the guilty officials and IGP with the help of the Bar Association.

    Sas Thursday, 11 April 2024 10:53 AM

    These policemen should be interdicted and must be prosecuted immediately.

    Jayantha Thursday, 11 April 2024 11:09 AM

    First oic should be interdicted.look at the statement he has made. Can you assult a person lile that. Also those officers responsible should be interdicted immediately. When unsuitable people absorbed into protect law and order, these things happen. Also this iindividual should file hr case for each individual including the irresponsible oic who makes lame excuses. It is high time to make it compulsory for traffic officers to have a bosy cam so that things like this does not happen again.

    Gamage Rather Thursday, 11 April 2024 11:35 AM

    Yes, this is first action has to take to aginest the OiC .Its clear he try to safe those police personnel. What is the standard of our police? How we can trust the Police. All the rules and regulations for the poor people.

    Lakmal Kahawela Thursday, 11 April 2024 11:44 AM

    New traffic offence to remove testicles. What about applying Sidddhalepa

    Responsible Citizenship Thursday, 11 April 2024 11:52 AM

    Whatever the reason of the offender the police has no authority whatsoever to assault anybody in this manner. If the IGP downwards is not taken to task for this horrendous behaviour of the police then there is a serious problem in this country when it comes to accountability.

    The HEAD is Rotten and INFECTION SEEPED to ROOTS!!!??? Simplest Analysis of STATUS QUO of Sri Lanka Police!!??

    Desha Bindu Thursday, 11 April 2024 12:25 PM

    What is this case? It was reported that the victims father is also a policeman?

    Chryshan Thursday, 11 April 2024 12:50 PM

    Police officers will be immediately transferred to a better place. Govt wants these types of idiotic police officers to control their preffered areas.

    Dinesh Thursday, 11 April 2024 01:13 PM

    i guess he assaulted his own testicles??? does the police take the people for idiots?? hopefully someone filmed this incident as otherwise dirty caps can say anything they want and get away with it... another FR violation....stupid cops..

    Ram Thursday, 11 April 2024 01:18 PM

    If a JMO report is obtained the assault will come to light. Even if the victim was at fault the Police have no right to assault. Present IG, please investigate

    Raven Thursday, 11 April 2024 01:29 PM

    I believe one can produce sperm with one testicle. He can implant the other one medically.

    Sam Thursday, 11 April 2024 01:35 PM

    You can arrest a person, but who has given them right to assault anyone. Can the IGP explain the law?? I am totally confused about the approach that our defence personnel take. He can be drunk or driving without licence the Police should be prosecuted and compensation should be given to these people. What has happened to human rights??

    Suthan Thursday, 11 April 2024 02:00 PM

    If this true, this must be treated same as gang rape

    Law Thursday, 11 April 2024 02:07 PM

    Have over the miscreant cops to the public with necessary authority to ensure that the same fate is met as the victim.

    Gona Thursday, 11 April 2024 02:38 PM

    Will the police ever make a political henchman 'Ataless' ?

    Mohan Thursday, 11 April 2024 05:49 PM

    Whatever the offence, The police should not assault the offender, but should leave it to the judiciary.

    Cherath Thursday, 11 April 2024 08:19 PM

    Firstly, the Policè Department must be ordered to pay a Rs.100 million compensation to the victim of this humongous police assault. In addition, each of the police thugs who assaulted him must pay 10 million, then sacked. In Sri Lanka today, the Police and the people are on opposite sides. People should refuse selling or having any dealings with the Police until a comprehensive shake up is completed in all areas.

    sanath Thursday, 11 April 2024 10:18 PM

    This victim should sue the police for 100 million for the damage caused.

    Vajira Jayawardena Thursday, 11 April 2024 10:27 PM

    This is a serious human right violation. This boy has got no future. He should file HR case against the police department.

    Mandayan Friday, 12 April 2024 12:29 AM

    Police hyenas at their best!

    beware of the cops Friday, 12 April 2024 06:35 AM

    These cops must be after mens testicles so that they can sell in the black market where there is a big demand for mens precious organ and make some extra cash for the aurudda. As such men should beware that they don't commit any crime these days since the cops will be after you to make a fast buck.

    Buddhist Friday, 12 April 2024 06:40 AM

    It's time for this person to file a lawsuit against the IGP and Tiran for a Billion Rupees for damage, as his entire life is gone.

    Anthony. R Saturday, 13 April 2024 03:15 PM

    Following in their big bosses path, when the head of the department is such what more to expect from the subordinates. Hope justice will prevail. Police cruelty to stop.
