Another vibrant and promising life lost. While her family and friends weep for Mel, I weep for Sri Lanka. Who's next?

You are correct Sir. Foolish Govt. is going to face a disaster in March and the entire rotten family will go behind bars and before that pulled along with the soil, this is the history.

Media can't express their thoughts freely rather than doing everything that the govt says. She must have been writing on the bad deeds of the govt, which should be welcomed. There is no future in SL. Very sad for her family. RIP!

Never heard about this journalist. Before pointing finger at others let police do its job.Many a time all the predictions were wrong and a few murders in Jaffna too revealed that most of them happened due to personnel vendetta but Tamil Tiger sympathisers pointed finger at Army.Just because it is very easy.What a bunch of ignorant idiots we have.

you are correct Mr. Rangans. Lasantha was "killed" by a three wheel driver. even after five years could not prosicuted him and draging the case. you can't blame the police or the Gvt isn't it?. This journalist might be murdered herself

How many more journalists and those clamouring for Human Rights in this country have to sacrifice their lives before this episode of dark days becomes a past in the country.
The politicians of the regime are happy in these killings and we have to see that this comes to an end.

Now this is what will happen.
1) Presidential commission will appoint
2) President will go to the funeral house to share the sorrow.
3) All expenses will be borne by the government.
4) People will not remember journalist called Ms.Mel Gunasekera.
