    Sri Lanka's law & order is fallen to a level that, you cannot term it democratic republic anymore. It is shame on our leaders for endorsing it and finding it hard to put it back in order.

    There is Law, but no one protecting them, including the very Police whos suppose to protect.

    Ultimately the whole country suffer - this is not acceptable at all.

    Very few gentlemen are there, not meant to blame them.

    Sympathies for the victim.

    In Sri Lanka Law applies by choice. By whose choice? This is a common sense question.
