    Is there provision made inside Police cells for committing suicide ?

    How can the suspect hang himself under police watch, inside the Police.

    Protests going on worldwide triggered by a white policeman torturing and killing a black man which was caught in a video by a member of the public. All Sri Lankan police Stations should be covered by CCTV cameras if we want to stop police brutality inside all Police Stations.

    Hanging with what? His underwear? Where did he get the rope from? What a load of cow manure!

    He would have helped the yahapalanaya to rob and now he commits suicide and they live

    The OIC and entire police officers in the police station must be held accountable for this. It's highly suspicious too when they say the suspect committed suicide inside the police cell. The officers must be charged for murder.

    CCTV malfunctioned at the time like the Museum break in over 5 years back Cheeeeeers

    WHO IS GIVING A ROPE, SL police cannot protect in-side cell how they would protect the country?

    QUESTION MORE IGP Thursday, 25 June 2020 12:55 PM

    let a post mortem be done to see if he had been brutally beaten to obtain evidence, which actually would have caused his death. will the coroner state in his report how the victim hang himself, was there a hook on the ceiling, did he use a rope and why was there a rope in the cell. who assisted him to put a rope or wire round his neck, in what did he stand on and then jump down to cause his neck to break . Sorry sirs - this reeks with suspicion.

    Dhompe dodol your questions will work in a Hollywood movie but not in SL. Just kill close the file with what ever you think.

    Suicide is one offence where the offender is punished if he fails, but allowed scott free if he succeed.
