    can you remember Sajent nalla thammbi passed away at a checkpoint. Sometime two students are wrong. President well said we have to do impartial finding. if two students were not obeied to police orders then their fault we have to do the justice for both parties. Split personalities are supported one party that is wrong.

    May be these two boys unintentionally or deliberately disobeyed the police order to stop. But the attempt made by the police to cover it up as an accident raises many questions.

    Shouldn't all inquiries be impartial? If an inquiry is partial then the outcome of the inquiry do not have any validity as then it is partial to one party. So it is useless to have a partial inquiry any way.

    No wonder people have no faith in any inquiry - police or other governmental authority as we have two types - partil and impartial inquiries admitted by the President. Hence call for international judges.

    No such comments when the Ambilipitiya youth thrown off from the building. Different laws for different parts of the country?

    Its very pathetic to see the loss of two undergraduates. Shooting should be the last resort. They are the asset of the family via DM Android App

    Is the president always required to order to do things impartially? What if president not order to do so means no impartial inquiry?. President should instruct only once "do not wait till I tell you to do the necessity"

    Seems like Sri Lanka haven't learned lessons from the past... One should look back Sri Lankas bitter tamils need immediate justice in this particular incident.. God bless SL and SL tamils.

    Sri Lanka police trying to imitate the US police where almost every month a unarmed man (mainly from the minority -nonwhite) is killed by police shoting. Perhaps we are influenced by US human rights standards. via DM Android App
