    Kamiss Friday, 17 September 2010 08:30 AM

    Extremely sad.

    Bird Eye Friday, 17 September 2010 08:35 AM

    Sabotage, Conspiracy theory, most probably. Too much for a coincident of events.

    JSilva Friday, 17 September 2010 08:35 AM

    what are you implying ? maybe you can't wait for the certain elements to start destroying this country again, just for some petty political gains.

    knight Rider Friday, 17 September 2010 08:36 AM

    Has anybody heard of safety standards for explosive storage ?

    Sue Friday, 17 September 2010 08:37 AM

    Wonder what reason will be given this time....

    AMICUS Friday, 17 September 2010 08:38 AM

    QUESTION ARISES WHO AUTHORISED TRANSPORT OF EXPLOSIVES IF THEY WERE NOT CLEARED FOR SAFETY & SECURITY. WHY DID THEY CHOOSE A POLICE STATION FOR SAFE PARKING AS CIVILIANS FREQUENT THE POLICE FOR LEGITIMATE PURPOSES. NOW HOW TO IDENTIFY EXPLOSIVE LADEN CONTAINER CARRIERS ON THE ROADS ? THESE,THE AUTHORITIES MUST GIVE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION TO.

    shanka Friday, 17 September 2010 09:06 AM

    Why do we need to keep this much of explosives inside a police station? Don't we have enough safety policies or procedures?

    mahinda pathirana Friday, 17 September 2010 09:12 AM

    upon reading most of the comments posted here, I wonder why some of the pessimists still want bombs to explode in this country.

    Saman/South Africa Friday, 17 September 2010 09:13 AM

    Negligence of Authorities.poor general public pay the price

    josh Friday, 17 September 2010 09:14 AM

    apparently the explosives were those used by construction workers to blast through rocks to build roads... the project requirement was that all explosives be stored in the police station for security reasons.. when a new truck load come today, it had blasted after some mishandling...

    megastar Friday, 17 September 2010 09:15 AM

    well the chinese are involved... its no suprise!

    Tm Abay Friday, 17 September 2010 09:23 AM

    Whatever I imply if terrorists still exist, R U gonna blame me for that. What difference does it make on what I imply?

    Tm Abay Friday, 17 September 2010 09:26 AM

    Indeed would those who never take safety measures in their country take them here?

    DHA Friday, 17 September 2010 09:37 AM

    USA or INDIA ?....someone wants the countries image worldwide tarnished.....!!!

    Ibnu Batuta Friday, 17 September 2010 09:41 AM
