Sri Lanka’s Former National Security Spokesman In A Second Suicide Attempt

Former Director General of the Media Centre for National Security and close associate of Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Lakshman Hulugalle has been re-admitted to hospital after a second failed suicide attempt by overdose, sources told Colombo Telegraph.

Hulugalle, who was staying in a hotel in Kandy was admitted to the Kandy General Hospital in the early hours of Monday morning.

Last month, Hulugalle was rushed to Lanka Hospitals in Colombo, for treatment after he walked in to the hospital claiming to have swallowed nearly 20 anti depression pills.  However, sources told Colombo Telegraph that doctors at the hospital had failed to find any traces of the drug in Hulugalle’s system. The top security official later denied allegations that he had overdosed.

He is said to be in recovery now.

Hulugalle has been embroiled in controversy after he ordered the transfer of 23 policemen responsible for the raid of a casino belonging to his alleged lover, Sudharma Netticumara, wife of Salaka Chairman, Gamini Nettikumara. President Mahinda Rajapaksa dissolved the MCNS retroactively from November 1st after racy details about Hulugalle’s liaison with businessman Gamini Nethikumara’s spouse came to light and he was found to have abused his power in a bid to rescue his paramour.

In Sri Lanka suicides rates, although down compared to the 90’s, are still high enough to cause concern, as at least one case is reported in newspapers every week. According to experts mental health literacy is very poor in Sri Lanka. To seek advice from suicide prevention experts please contact ;

    You’d expect at least the guy would be smart enough to kill himself; but nooo… he messes that up too, twice now.

    May be people should start sending him proper instructions on how to do the job successfully. I bet you’d be doing Sri Lanka a great service.

      Wow!

      This guy Lakshman Hulugalla aka Borugalla, is truly pathetic.

      To begin with he is a Shill of the Regime, lying all the time.

      One wonders whether is he lying trying to commit suicide? He is either incompetent or is a true liar, just like the regime he is shilling for.

    Ho should give 100’s of antedrepressant drugs to itz mafia boss gothabaa and take another 100 and achieve the last breath as soon as possible so that sri lankans will be able to live peace fully. If he can he should put 100s of pills to all rajavassas and cloasee associates including himself sot that they achieve thier last breath asap. Why is this idiot suicides and end up in the hospital mang?WTF is he wussy?

    If he is really trying to kill himself, he can do a huge public service to the country before he goes, by dishing as much dirt on the ruling regime as he knows of. Assuming he wants to die, he doesn’t have to fear the repercussions from the regime.

    So on the tiny chance that Hulugalle is reading this, please please reveal all that you know about GOSL to foreign media before you leave this world.

        What makes you think that asking for revelations means one does not already have enough evidence of atrocities committed.

        Dev – Perhaps true, but there’s a lot of of other illegal shite both past and present that could be revealed for the benefit of the country. Good idea from Palmsquirrell!

      Relax everyone.

      He is not gonna’ kill himsself. Nor is he gonna’ talk.

      These so called suicide attempts are “screams” for help.

      Not to us. The Sri Lankans. Who are noramlly very sympahtetic to distressed people. Who ever they may be.

      Hulugalle wants members of the corrupt Rajapassa clan to hear his cry.

      He wants Rajapassa to restore all his perks & privileges as they were before the scandal.

      Cheers!

        For all his tough talk during press conferences, a little bit of pressure and he can’t handle it. What a ninny.

        I think he wants to commit suicide but the guy cannot count to know how many tablets he too. So have some pity on the guy and give him a loaded gun and hope he does not shoot his toes or try taking his brains off by pointing the gun at his A-*.

        If he is crying for help from Rajapaksa, his sanity really is screwed because Rajapaksa don’t come off as the sort of people to give a #$%^ about anyone not a Rajapaksa.

    Ben Hurling! At last you came with the gist of the matter. True! He needs attention of the regime but not the public. Luckily, public seems extremely angry. He has no any professional expertise or learning. He is just another ruthless thug. The regime knows that they can easily replace him with another thug. He knows it.

    can’t he once and for all do it properly.Is it that difficult to commit suicide.

    BTW he has screwed up for all srilankans because when i call srilanka sumithrayo and those other places given here they are skeptical that i really want to commit suicide.They are asking “oya atthatama oyage jeevitheya ganda balanavadha(are you really trying to take your life).Earlier when the first article came on CT and i contacted them they told me to do all the paperwork before i take my life as otherwise it could be a nuisance to my children etc and lawyers will benefit.

    Many years ago, I remember, this dirty fellow was involved in some illegal timber business. Once, he was alleged to have cheated some money entrusted to him which should have gone to the SLFP

    (contd) party fund. I don`t know how and why our Great Ozymandias picked up this rogue and placed him in a responsible position. Crooked like a corkscrew from top to bottom,I wonder if this rascal has ever done anything good to anyone other than himself. Hula, Please commit suicide, for that is the only service you can do for your country!

    Swallowing anti depressants to gain sympathy or has his lover gilr or girls ditched him ?

    Hey man go to the village kade and get some “polidol” for an answer.
    That will do the trick once and for all.

    Has this Bugger Helugalla settled the Hotel Suisse bill? Or will it be forwarded to NLDB to settle? All who have helped MR in the system will one day have to commit suicide. MR will commit suicide the day he loses the Presidency. That day nothing can prevent the Public from tearing down the hoardings with his ugly mug and erasing the name of the Rajapaksas from this country. The time will come sooner than expected.

    Someone is on the ledge and you guys are cheering, “Jump!…..Jump!” I like the idea. I wish some of you troubled people too would join him and help halt the decline in the standard of public discourse in Sri Lanka.

      he is not jumping no.We don’t believe he really wants to jump.He is just trying to make mahinda’s heart melt.His message is clear.I have done so much of dirty work for you and you have………

      His trials and tribulations don’t warrant suicide.He got some high positions through political patronage and now lost some of them when he lost favour with his political bosses.Some he has retained.This happens all the time and people who climb up the ladder in this manner know it and are prepared for it.So what is this fuss this guy is making.

      Kutti machan if you want to go on the ride go ahead but don’t ask us also to get into the car you bloody fool.

    Hopefully Dayan Jayathilake ( our Sri Lankan Goebbels ) will take a similar approach, who should have thousands of victims during the final days of war on his conscience

      Shankar Potta Machan,

      GOTCHA!

      It is well known that the literary device “irony” can be quite a challenge for many people. One of the forms of irony is “verbal irony” (also known as sarcasm) defined by Cicero as “saying one thing and meaning another.” That is, the speaker makes a statement meaning the exact opposite of what the actual words purportedly mean.

      Have a nice day (No, here I’m not being ironic!)

    All Hotels Beware of bookings from Helugalla as you will have his dead corpse in one of your rooms one of these days. Either he would have committed suicide or made to look as if he has committed suicide. Helugalla appears destined to join Jayeraj Fernandopulle, Sripathi Sooriyaatachchi, Bahratha Lakshman, Mahinda Wijesekara.
