The motorcycle had then gone past the policeman and dragged the measuring tape.

The policeman gave chase and stopped the motorcycle and assaulted the rider and pillion rider.

  1. Oh well, the motorbike riders did not stop, and the police officer behaviours is not acceptable either. Clearly, this country has not evolved to follow democracy. The both parties need be educated. Young people need to be taught how to behave when a police officer stops them and the police officer must be taught that he can’t take justice in his own hands.

    • The best way to deal with this kind of behaviour is putting them in a hard labour farming for a month and make them to work for the country. Just making them to pay few thousand rupees fine will not work, because easy money comes from Western or Middle Eastern countries and the youths don’t know the value of money.

    • Lock them up in a room with you, they will become crazy. They will become terrorists. Most Tamils would blindly follow Indians and westerners ;—)))

      Remember those days Tamils became child suicide attackers to please Adele Balasingham (Crazy Australian convict).

  2. Antany, When there is a tape or a rope across the road & you ride a motorbike you won’t see it, you can’t stop, you just go over it. Even a bicycle can’t stop. Antany has to be educated first with the policeman.
