A vehicle of a private security firm carrying cash amounting to more than Rs 5 million belonging to two private companies in Kandy was robbed by an unidentified gang in the Ududumbara area this evening, Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said.
He said around five suspects who had come in a van had obstructed the vehicle in the Galkele area and threatened the security officers using a pistol and robbed the money around 4.35 pm yesterday.
Police had later found the vehicle used by the suspects abandoned in the Pallekele area.
Several police teams have been deployed to nab the suspects. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

Is there anything good to be spoken about our country now?Robbery, murder, rape, abduction and bribery aren't they not enough? We were proud to be called Sri Lankans few decades ago but now?

Even those who call themselves patriot's and to be the nationalists of sri lanka is just barking to attract attention to themselves. Given the opportunity to migrate to even a another third world country like Iran or India, sri Lankan patriots would be happy to book their one-way flight … let alone an industrially developed nation they will line up few weeks in advance to receive PR visa in front of an embassy. Those who remain here are about 13% of the population are the real swindlers drug dealers thugs and their clan along with those who will support the dirty dozen for a large sum of stolen wealth that was accumulated from raping the country in broad-daylight.

"...They threatened the security officers using a pistol and robbed". So, security officers had no weapons? Why do you have security officers in the first place? That is not SECURITY.

Better head line : Gang and Security Firm employees stage robbery and get away with Rs.5m using toy pistol. Surely is that not obvious.
