    IGP.... please provide good quality handcuffs to all the police stations. If not...at least some locally made Kohulanu !.

    Rajitha Wednesday, 22 September 2010 07:56 AM

    this isn't good. who'd given the police the authority to murder even if the murdered is a criminal? only the judiciary system is eligible to make a judgement on a person.

    bad guys have rights.

    TPB Thursday, 23 September 2010 12:51 AM

    You are right. This is how even the innocent are terminated, some times with the same excuse.

    walapalam Wednesday, 22 September 2010 10:22 AM

    well done police clean the underworld and criminals
    oh sorry not all the criminals

    ajith Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:02 AM

    Yes, of course...!!!! A great social service.

    M.ASHRAFF NAZIM Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:14 AM

    UNDERWORLD CULTURES WILL HAVE TO BE TOTALLY ELIMINATED AND WIPED OFF FROM OUR SOIL IRRESPETIVE OF PRTY POLITICS.

    Gamaya Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:23 AM

    You expect the police to decide whether anybody is innocent or not? then you better expect pigs to fly also.

    Gamaya Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:24 AM

    Yes yes this same police killed two youths in Angulana and many others in side the police also. Wait till this good work come searching for you.

    Gamaya Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:26 AM

    Rajitha is correct. There is a system in place to try any criminal. If the police cant prove it that is their problem. Whatever happens the judiciary system must not be bypassed. Only people have brains can understand this long term catastrophe.

    Shivanka David Friday, 24 September 2010 10:05 AM

    well done police. we salute you for your good work!! that's great & that's what we should hear a full stop to this underworld Thugs.

    Gamaya Thursday, 23 September 2010 03:33 AM

    Some of these people who have comented seem to live in the stone age. The world has passed that era long long ago and now we are in a more legalized and civilized society. This society does not (not yet in this country but) kill people just because they have killed others. There is a formal way of handling such situations and democracy of all is protected, though these things are not familiar to majority of voters in this country. Probably Sri Lanka is still in the stone age. ooooooops.

    willows Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:06 AM

    In a way this is good, but couldlead to unfair treatment as well.

    sira Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:11 AM

    what right? To kill innocents. This is how the punishment should be made as one cannot expect justice from the legal authorities.

    suwimal Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:41 AM

    You said it!

    Janaka Thursday, 23 September 2010 05:05 AM

    This guy turned in to a ganster/Criminal for political reasons. it is normal that in SL politics, u need to have thugs & criminals to run the show. Now I wonder what will Happen to his young Wife (arnd 36) & his Three kids who is all Girls aged 16, 14 & 10. I wonder if they will be taken care by the Govmnt..

    Roshan Thursday, 23 September 2010 05:38 AM

    Yes Sira, there are many Lawyers who can win the cases for this criminals and also these thugs kill the witnesses also. This is the only way they can clean this underworld.

    dx Wednesday, 22 September 2010 05:32 AM

    same old story...

    rajeeva Wednesday, 22 September 2010 05:37 AM

    welldone police, keep it up.sweep out the under world.(but not the innocents).good show.

    Punchi Putha Wednesday, 22 September 2010 01:10 PM

    Is this to cover up the sins of higher-ups? Suddenly underworld leaders are trying to escape and being killed.

    Bakamoona Wednesday, 22 September 2010 06:06 AM

    As long as innocents are not killed, public will support the police. Well done.

    Jeeva Wednesday, 22 September 2010 06:37 AM

    Dear Police,
    You save a lot of public money by removing murderers and thugs with out putting them in jail. Well done and keep it up.
