    Govt should thoroughly investigate this incident. New government credibility on the line. Please show to everyone your government's innocence.

    Hope that state atrocities have not recommenced after a lapse of almost 5 years. Trust we are hopefully not going back to the regime prior to 2015.

    Champa Thursday, 28 November 2019 03:24 PM

    Mind my telling you, Bandula, whatever it is, we didn't hear such news for the last 5 years! This has happened only a week after your President's assumption of duties. This is very serious.
