    Three wheelers are causing accidents everywhere, but innocent decent drivers become victims because of them.

    WHY ARREST?

    Jude Sunday, 01 August 2021 12:35 AM

    Sena, if victim hospitalized, then other driver will be in custody until victim released from hospital!! That's the law!! Best thing give bribes to victim and get him out of hospital within 24hrs, and or bribe the police and hospital staff!!

    Jamis Sunday, 01 August 2021 02:36 AM

    If the victim is hospitalized then the driver will be arrested. That's what the law states.

    because she is not a supporter of the "Rajas"

    Sam Silva Sunday, 01 August 2021 04:29 AM

    Exactly. Do you get arrested in normal circumstances of an accident.

    Migara J Sunday, 01 August 2021 12:03 AM

    As a driver, every accident is preventable if you are driving the car it's your duty to pay attention don't blame others for it. Ask yourself this question could I as a driver prevent this accident the answer is yes pay attention around while you drive having a driving license is not a must it's a privilege when you have a driving license you take full responsibility im not saying it's your falut but it could have be prevented . Dont drive like the three wheelers your better then them.

    Don't worry the minister will be taking her change of clothes.

    Hit and run was a decease of many politicians and now it has spread to actors and signers. Before long the decease will spread further

    Boru Banda Sunday, 01 August 2021 05:09 AM

    Please release this lady as she will be a future politician!

    Nimalka Makalande Sunday, 01 August 2021 06:23 AM

    Why arrest? These 3 wheels drivers are so reckless in driving and should be banned because of them others are at risk.

    Lumbini Sunday, 01 August 2021 06:56 AM

    You can question the driver first, without arresting them if the accident is not fatal. If the driver is at fault, then take into custody when the accident is fatal.

    Raveen Hanwella Sunday, 01 August 2021 07:11 AM

    In Sri Lanka if a pedestrian or motor cyclist is injured by a automobile the driver is automatically arrested. This was not the case previously. It follows a police circular which came in being a few years ago. This is not right. In countries like USA Canada or UK even if a person dies the driver is questioned and arrested later if there is evidence he or she was at fault. Time somebody questioned this practice.

    Does the 3 wheeler belong to a powerful politico?
