The assault of a woman in Ratnapura was condemned by the Women for Rights during a media briefing held on Monday.

Co-president of Women for Rights, Saroja Paulraj said;

[quote]This assault was an assault on the pride of our women. This cannot be considered an isolated incident. The duty of the police is to uphold law and protect peace. However, when a woman is assaulted in this manner it shows that the police and the army are trying to take the law into their own hands. We are now questioning as to who gave them the power to control the law. Today it affected the women, tomorrow it could affect the children and in the future it could effect the entire society. [/quote]
