The three youths, who were remanded on charges of posting semi-naked photos (Mooning) taken on top of the Pidurangala Rock on social media, were warned and released by the Dambulla Magistrate yesterday.

 

They were released on a fine of Rs.1, 500 each after they pleaded guilty. 


The youths, residents of Galewela, were arrested on September 26 after they surrendered to the Sigiriya Police. They posted semi-naked photos, which went viral on social media and were criticized by religious leaders and the general public.
