    These things are common in Kadawatha due to the inactivity or the influence of Kadawatha police. Seek the records, Kadawatha has the highest burglary numbers in Sri lanka and the lowest success of apprehending the crimes. Most sleepy police people who only cares about the traffic offence.

    Cashless is the way to go. Some businesses would like the cash to hide their revenue and avoid taxes. There are also armored vehicle services available to transport cash. Good no one got killed in this incident.
