    This "Bhuthaya" is not the actual suspect : everyone knows who the real "ghost" is who was behind the attack on Lanka E News offices.

    Nilantha Friday, 11 February 2011 11:22 AM

    If "Bhuthaya" is not the actual and if you know the real one... why don't you expose it..?
    Don't indirectly blame others..

    No no... UNP is Mahinda's buddy. Tamil diaspora is the best to pint finger at.

    They have caught a wild goose like Lasantha's case

    Yehiya-Doha Friday, 11 February 2011 01:08 PM

    Inquiry must start from home.

    Cobra Friday, 11 February 2011 01:37 PM

    So the dreaded 'boothaya' has become a scapegoat. He will admit to the crime and say that he felt like doing it just for the heck of it. Bahubootha!!!

    'Buthya' will go scot free.

    Ranjith Friday, 11 February 2011 08:27 AM

    Is it one of the real 'Buthaya' from 'bajaga' or some other 'Buthaya" to cover up

    Winky Friday, 11 February 2011 08:44 AM

    All know who is the culprit is! This is an eye wash to fool the people.

    Anton Friday, 11 February 2011 08:41 AM

    Bhoothaya is the suspect in the "Bhootha" story and not the real culprit.

    Royalist Friday, 11 February 2011 08:44 AM

    The Police Kattadiyas have very cleverly tied the Boothaya to the webpost!

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 11 February 2011 08:54 AM

    The important thing is WHO gave the contract & who else is behind.

    Ravana Friday, 11 February 2011 09:03 AM

    unless he "confesses" that the UNP paid him !
