Sergeant who went berserk in Thebuwana remanded


4 October 2018 10:45 am - 15     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Sergeant, who was arrested following his violent behavior armed with a T-56 in the Thebuwana area yesterday, was remanded until October 9 after he was produced before the Mathugama Magistrate Court today.


The sergeant, attached to the Thebuwana Police Station, was furious to learn that the lorry driver he arrested on September 29th for transporting sand sans a permit, was not going to be produced in court yesterday as scheduled after allegedly orders of the police hierarchy. He had then grabbed his service T-56 rifle and started behaving in a violent manner.  (Sheain Fernandopulle and Sunil S. Thanthriarachchi)

    On the footsteps of his master. No discipline.

    Discipline doesn't mean obeying corrupt orders. Govt mus investigate the Sand Lorry ASAP

    Berserk? Seems like one of the few people who will stand up for what is right anymore.

    did the right thing wrong way. he must be punished for his behavior but his accusations against the top brass must be investigated thoroughly.

    Now don't brush the cause under the carpet. Here was a frustrated copy due to the wrongdoings of his bosses. Get to the Truth.

    His frustration is justifiable. Of course it gave vent in a different way, but his complaint must be investigated.

    He should have been promoted while OIC need to be suspended until a inquiry

    Nimal Thursday, 04 October 2018 01:57 PM

    I agree with you.

    He is a brave man who came forward against those who were breaking the law. Instead of punishing the culprits, the authorities may take action against the constable.

    Seems like a honest officer. He could have vented his frustration by other means, collect evidence against the top brass.

    His displeasure over the OIC's attitude was expressed in an inappropriate way. Recently OIC of Raddolugama refused to accept a complaint of a lady subject to domestic violence, she is an helpless women I suggested her to visit the CPA.

    Which rights group is going to talk FOR this poor fellow? HRC, here's a case for you!
