The monk came and after speaking of expenses to repair vehicle ... went away


The monk came and after speaking of expenses to repair vehicle ... went away

No justice has still been done to Dhanusha Lakshan who tragically met with death some weeks back after being knocked down by a vehicle driven by a monk who did not have a driving license. A tree planting programme was launched yesterday by Kalawana Gunodaya Foundation on completion of 18 days since his death. 

Parents of deceased student Dhanusha Lakshan who joined on the occasion said: "It is 18 days now
since we lost our child. Nobody looked into the matter. A monk came home and wanted to come into a settlement. What that monk spoke of was what happened to the vehicle more than our child. He said that it would cost a lot to repair the vehicle. Is my child to answer for the damage done to the vehicle for my child being run over when standing by the roadside? No justice was done to us from any corner as such. It was we who strived so much to bring up the child so far, giving him the necessary education. It is we who feel the pain about about the child. Just as much as the vehicle is to the monk ... I value my child. 

What we ask from the gods is to look into this matter and do some justice to this. We beg the president in this country to mediate in this matter and to do justice for what happened to my son". In memory of the student Dhanusha Lakshan who died on the 13th of last month being knocked down by a cab  driven by a monk ... parents, brothers and friends had organised a programme of planting 'Mee' trees on either side of Kalawana Gunodaya Foundation yesterday (1).
