Three youths had been arrested on charges of posting semi-naked photos they had taken while on top of the Pidurangala Rock, on social media, the police said yesterday.


The arrests were made after they surrendered themselves to the Sigiriya Police last morning.

The Police said the three youths were of 18 and 19 years in age and residents of Galewela.

“The suspects were identified as youths, who have completed their higher studies. Two of them were charged with appearing in semi-nude photos, whilst the other youth was charged for taking such photos,” it said. “The suspects will be produced in the Dambulla Magistrate’s Court today (27),” it added.

Earlier, it was reported that a group of young men and women, who climbed the Pidurangala Rock belonging to the Pidurangala Raja Maha Viharaya in the historic Sigiriya, had allegedly taken photographs in the form of nude photos and posted them on social media.
