    The Department of police must have proper road blocks. That is a very effective way of controlling this type of crimes. To reduce the crimes to the irreducible minimum, the police must confiscate all un-authorised Fire -Arms. Mr.IGP these incidents do not reflect that well on you.

    Sri Lanka is paradise for criminals. These criminals have been exported from South to North. As a result, North is also facing crimes that ever before and it is controlled by Singhalese military.
