    They might have hidden weapons. Yess all 9 of them...or may be while escaping from Kayts they drowned.Justice delayed- Justice denied.

    Police should take them to show where they hid the murder weapon and then say they tried to escape!

    It is time for f the police to clarify that the 9 suspects including the 3 brothers accused of raping the 18 year old student, Sivaloganathan Viththiya, are Tamils and not Sinhala or Muslims. CM wigneswaran will blame it on the police or armed forces personnel!

    They are not rape suspects but rapists and murderers.They should be made to pay for their crime

    Under where President Sirisena is to propose death sentence for drug related issues, rape and child abuse too should be included. I am sure people will raise both their hands in this regard.

    We also need a quick punishment as promised by our Hon President. He is a gentleman so his words come from his heart. So tge action will follow unlike the usual politicians.

    These rapist must be punished in public. The punishment of pain and agony should be for at least 3 to 4 hrs. How much that girl would have suffered before dying.

    I wish this judgment will be delivered. If delivered great we can proudly say Sri Lanka has Good Justice System to punish criminals. Time will say lets wait and see..
