    Appalling.

    Sarana Simion Monday, 29 April 2013 03:36 AM

    The public of Kollannawa shouted so much for a Bun & packet of milk. What if they were given a bit more. How uneducated, stupid and shamless people of Kollonnawa are?

    bodu show Monday, 29 April 2013 03:42 AM

    Police: Salute Sir! Duminda: Aney machang,,, people: deyyo sakki

    vipula Monday, 29 April 2013 05:39 AM

    Police might say that Duminda is only a suspect in a murder case and not a convicted criminal, and therefore saluting is OK. Then salute all the unconvicted criminals! Shame Shame!!!!

    vipula Monday, 29 April 2013 03:40 AM

    The ugliest photograph of the year! Shame!!!!

    Charith Monday, 29 April 2013 03:42 AM

    Achala Monday, 29 April 2013 11:29 AM

    What a Shame. Insulting for meaning of the word POLICE. Saluting certain Businessmen.

    KADMIN Monday, 29 April 2013 03:44 AM

    What a Joke? Absolute comedy, and haven't seen the country in this low after many years.

    poorboy Monday, 29 April 2013 11:35 AM

    They refused to salute to former CJ ,when she was in power. Now, look at this picture. These people only maintain low&order in this country. Where are we going?

    Andrew Pitugala Monday, 29 April 2013 03:48 AM

    Senior Police Officer saluting a murder suspect.
    Police will have to set the same standard and salute all criminals. They will take it upon the innocent civilians.

    IqbalA Monday, 29 April 2013 05:45 AM

    VILLAGE IDIOT Monday, 29 April 2013 05:51 AM

    What USA can do for this country is that take out all its educated and decent people out of the country and leave the Politicians and other idiots who applause these dramas alone so that they could do the so called "DUMMALA WARAMA" in Sri Lanka.

    jay Monday, 29 April 2013 11:39 AM

    Can we see the face of the guy saluting please.

    MayIwin Silva Monday, 29 April 2013 03:56 AM

    The whole police department should be ashamed of themselves for saluting a suspected criminal. What has he done to the country? Can the same salute go to the former General?

    Manika Monday, 29 April 2013 05:48 AM

    hmm. Vomitish.

    Prasadan Monday, 29 April 2013 03:52 AM

    Sudharman Radeliya Monday, 29 April 2013 09:24 AM

    State of Sri Lanka today shows, serious lack of leadership !
    Time president should resign.
    People who elect them questions their own morales.

    hb Monday, 29 April 2013 04:03 AM

    While poor flower sellers are taken into custody, murder suspects are greeted with a salute by high ranking officers. Asiyawe Aascharya kiyanne nikanda?

    Nadi Karunaratne Monday, 29 April 2013 06:47 AM

    No alternative leadership on the horizon - that is what is truly depressing - like a jackboot on our faces for ever.

    We raise our voices against any foreign influence that we think might interfere with the sovereignty of this country and photos like this makes me think twice. And may be foreign intervention is not a bad idea after all

    Amith Monday, 29 April 2013 03:32 AM

    It is very shame to say I am a Sri Lankan, I feel really guilty for not having done anything against this. Will this earth bare this unjustice? We criticize international community for asking about human rights. But who will justify favoration and biasness to politicians?

    Matalan Monday, 29 April 2013 05:29 AM

    This is a World Record - A Senior Police Officer saluting a murder suspect on bail, while the latter is unresponsive and seated! - Says too well to where this country has sunk.
