My father was fallen in a pool of blood-Son

Wasantha Soysa’s son Heesara made a fervent appeal to the President and the Police Chief to apprehend the ruthless killers of his father who had 11 Guinness world records under his belt.

“I received a call from the hotel around 11.40 in the night asking me to come there immediately as there was some trouble there. When I rushed to the hotel I found that everything had been destroyed and shattered while my father was fallen in a pool of blood, with heavy injuries to his head. I lifted him and rushed him to hospital in a vehicle, but he was pronounced dead upon admission. The finger prints of the gangsters and all the footage have been recorded in the CCTV cameras. Therefore I appeal to the President and the law enforcement authorities to mete out justice to us by apprehending the culprits who killed my father,” he said.

    Very strong punishments need to be meted. This country should not see men making a living from thuggery, gang business, pimping and sycophancy.

    Well done Police. We know you can do a good job if free from political meddling - there may be a few bad eggs but everywhere there are a few. It was pre Jan 2015 when Police had to await orders whether to proceed or not in case of a crime.
