    No security officers in the night - in this day and age is asking for to be robbed. The bank should be held responsible for negligence when Bank making huge profits.the Chief SO should be taken to task for not requesting higher management for good security.

    Even if there were security guards, what can they do. These robbers come with weapons and the security guard has nothing!

    I have seen security guards of banks with guns. So you suggest we withdraw all security - is that a solution to save just a few bucks but let crim inals steel millions easily.

    There are very many security gadgets in vogue, not all that expensive, that could trigger alarms in case of break-ins.The Banks are very negligent.

    How about politcians and their henchmen and women walking in to state banks and taking huge "loans". Now total equaling to 6 month expenditure to run the whole country. When minister Ranjan raised this issue in parliament the people were told it is "ILLEGAL" to expose these mega robbers

    Headline news!! Robbery with use of guns. Where is the news " Robbing without guns". Daily life of robbing by politicians in Sri Lanka. People Rob the bank gets 10 years in prison; Politician who robbed become a Minister.This is really a joke...

    No mention if money was robbed; but 2 forearms. .Bank security guards have those 5 foot long shot guns. It will take eternity to point it at the target. A bag of chillies powder can be thrown faster. Where is our high tech??
