    Because of these idiots we are not able travel freely. Day by day our visa restrictions are getting tougher and tougher. Thanks to these guys Sri Lanka is just above few countries from the bottom of the most powerful passports in the world. I hope the government take this in to serious consideration and give them maximum punishment.
