    I have seen these smart asses around Fort and they were asking for it. The famous Sri Lanka saying "බැරි සිල් නොගනින් අබරෝ"

    Was he not wearing a “ Harness “ to protect him from falls of this nature. Please introduce immediately. Make it a rule of law not only for the Navy, for every one working on building tops etc,etc
