One of the suicide bombers who blew himself up in an attack last Sunday had been a suspect who was arrested a few months ago in connection with an incident in Mawanella in which Buddha statues were damaged, Highways Minister Kabir Hashim said at a press conference held today.

“One of my security officers was attacked in the incident. A few suspects were arrested and some of them were released later. It was found that one of them had been the suicide bomber of an attack that took place last Sunday. I am in the process of receiving more information on this,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Then what the hell you let him off. The government should have nailed him at that time. Never give a second chance to your enemy- Lord Krishna in Gita . Remember humans are the most dangerous creatures than any other members of the animal kingdom
