    Ha Ha nice story Police.... it looks so flimsy. Didn't u want him alive afraid that he will spill the beans on the Police? True that criminals shud not be tolerated, but extra judicially killing them is very uncivilized culture.

    Whatever happened criminals are of no use to society. Keeping them in custody is an expense for the public. One bullet will not cost that much. well dome police.

    This is the best option. In prisons even criminals continue their nefarious activities with inside help.

    Thugs of Matara Roshan calibre do not deserve such a peaceful death. If police confirm that the bullet had hit the very right person,that's it no regrets.
