This has become a comedy in Sri Lanka to cover the accused with bed sheets and face covers. In the West they are exposed so that they would be ashamed of what they did. In Sri Lanka they are bold enough to commit the offence but ashamed to be brought before justice. Expose them forthwith

There is nothing to do with the Attire or Face Covering in the West 24 hours females are entire body is opened and the Judge knows to deal with it and no advise needed from the publiuc

This accident was waiting to be happened looking at the attire of the poor illogical boy and the mother. How can these humans have their senses fully operated, while driving when their clothes has denied the full flow of their senses. Courts have to take these matters very seriously when the accused parties appear for the case.

Two lives lost. This judge value them at 100000 rupees which is a mere 750 dollars for both. 375 dollars each life!. I would like to see how much it would have been if the dead was his family members. There seem to be something fishy here. Is the old guard is still active despite the cry for change.
