    Nice to see the law been used accordingly. Give them the maximum punishment and keep them detained.

    Rasheed Friday, 09 March 2018 09:57 AM

    Mr. Nimal don't come to conclusion now itself, wait for few days they will be released.

    Sofia Friday, 09 March 2018 12:59 AM

    Ah but the real 'main suspect' is still supposed to be free as an MP.

    If these suspects spill the beans disclosing the people who instructed and engaged them, I am 200% sure no action will be taken to get the people behind the scene into custody

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 09 March 2018 10:13 AM

    Thus they will be released as soon as the situation gets better. Criminal Impunity is a nature of this country.

    Dr.Raghav Sharma Friday, 09 March 2018 02:59 AM

    These violence of hate crimes will continue in a cyclic manner unless the government

    Samantha Friday, 09 March 2018 04:04 AM

    Saj Friday, 09 March 2018 05:38 AM

    14 days?? it should be 20 years under state of emergency right? seems this all actions to white wash the UN top official who is in Sri Lanka now!

    Jayawewa Friday, 09 March 2018 06:13 AM

    Bring them to Colombo. Let public attention to subside. Then release them quietly.

    Let's see their names and faces. Shame is the best deterrent.

    Stan Friday, 09 March 2018 10:17 AM

    They have no shame. The publicity would embolden them.

    Arnold Friday, 09 March 2018 06:50 AM

    There is very little chance of truth coming out, as every body is scared of the Big Daddy behind this mayhem.

    Manjula Friday, 09 March 2018 11:09 AM

    Mr Arnold, If the Big Daddy is so pwerfull as you say wit such confidence, The current government and intelligence is not worthy to run the country. Isn't it?

    Arnold Friday, 09 March 2018 04:44 PM

    But the alternative is even worse. when we are in a situation like this we need to select the best out of the worst.

    Unchikun Friday, 09 March 2018 07:13 AM

    In order to get the truth, the official need to waterboard and use sleep deprivation. This should be a lesson to other criminal elements.
