    I doubt, politicians robs in millions and billions not in thousands, the one in Battaramulla robs in Trillions probably.

    Cost of living is sky rocketing, UNP miserably messed it up, looks like only the politicians are having money, what do you expect an ordinary citizen to do to pay his bills, robbing is wrong but people are frustrated and broke.

    Its funny how any topic just turns into the fault of the governement. There could be a thousand reasons why this robber committed the crime but nope its because the governement is useless and the cost of living is too high. In that case let us all start robbing banks.
