    Brothers ! Police can't prevent murders. the only thing they can do is minimizing crimes. in this case police is to investigate into the incident. that s all

    Mara wedek ne! Saturday, 15 January 2011 05:39 PM

    Srilankan Saturday, 15 January 2011 06:48 PM

    May he He Belongs to Underworld , who knows ..

    chalieh Saturday, 15 January 2011 06:52 PM

    Does this mean its okay to kill an innocent man just because his younger brother happens to be a criminal ??? Will everyone who says its ok to kill such people say the same if the victim happened to be his own brother?

    victoria Saturday, 15 January 2011 07:18 PM

    cleaned only the oppositopn underworld??

    Fair N Square Saturday, 15 January 2011 07:54 PM

    Those who live by the sword die by the sword!!! Not that am a fan of murder or a life being lost BUT if the brother was an underground operative he MAY have had a hand in some form. Could the other brother who was murdered earlier be his financier from the loot he gathered....?

    Neomal Sunday, 16 January 2011 01:27 AM

    Too many unknown gunmen huh?

    nari bena Sunday, 16 January 2011 03:33 AM
