    I am sure if the police has freedom they will act very fast in any case. this will support the case of bring back public police commision a body only answerable to its commision not the govt

    If police knows who the murderer is then easy to apprehend like in this case. But many other cases not the same. This guy looks like an obvious suspect.

    Readers who criticise everything done by SL police please note that in US there are many unresolved murders of high profile people including the murder of former president John Kennedy although they put a guy behind bars. The famous Holywood actress Natalie Wood who died of drowning in 1981 while in a boat with her husband not yet concluded.

    This triple murder disease is spreading from Kahawatte sinhalease to Wellawatte Tamils and next seemsto be Orugodawatte Muslims.

    I am ever amazed at the cynicism and general contrariness of the people who comment on news stories such as this one.
    For goodness' sake, give credit when it is due, and shut up about unrelated cases!!

    We want the full report on the case to understand what leads to the triple murder. Actually who did and how he did it to avoide such cases in future. Anyway applause to police force for tracking him down and arrest the main suspect.

    well done Police, it clearly shows if politicians are not involved we will have an efficient police service which will ultimately help to maintain law & order, anyone listening

    Don't forget mate. This is Miracle of Asia. Suspects and murders are always visible in this country but the innocents.

    In US if a politician interfere with police work, that politician will be in jail
