    This sexual abuses are now become a national issue....this clearly indicate there is a big sexual unrest prevail in the country...as contradictory to youth unrest....there should be some solution for this...this issue should be looked at social & physiological angle... rather than legal point of view..
    ...in nut shell some part of the brothel houses need to be legalized...other wise this issue can not control...otherwise all school girls ,boys will victim of this sexual unrest...

    It is time to consider legalizing the prostitution in Sri Lanka at certain areas. More and more people are showing the sexual pressure in the society. Religiously and culturally this may not accepted. But scientifically that is one of the need of humans.

    Thousands of local females face this situation on a daily basis. Why are the authorities only concerned when it happens to a foreigner? Should we not first be protecting our own!?

    rogue Tuesday, 06 September 2011 01:41 PM

    this not new,not only for foreigners even for local women sexual harrastment has increased in buses.Everyday i travel i see this happening,this menace should be stopped.Why dont these idiots think how it will feel if their mother,sisters,wife undergo through this.One thing is if you love someone truly you would never think of another!

    He should be flogged in public. Our Mothers, Sisters & Daughters go through this everyday. They cannot even walk on our roads without people saying something. And nothing is done by the authorities.

    Nagaragiri Kiththil Tuesday, 06 September 2011 03:39 PM

    Legalize prostitution.

    Razvi Wednesday, 07 September 2011 06:43 AM

    Put more semi comfortable buses to travel without packed. Widen the roads so no traffic jam and delays to reach destinations.
    So no sexual harassment in public buses.
    Brothel license will not a solution, it is contagious, will increase the desire beyond control.
