    Aren't there bigger crimes and the drug menace to tackle ? No drug king pin is ever arrested - only small fry with a gram or two and they are replaced by other street vendors daily.. This is easy way to show Police are active.

    After arresting courts will fine them then they will pay the fine and start the work again there is no point...we have to change the rule like no bail and no fine only 3 to 6 month jail...~Future Srilanka~
