how odd. There is not a single bullet hole on the sides of the vehicle.

Possibly through the window, but the question is how did the car catch fire?

According to the cartridge case, the weapon used is an assault rifle that is not easy to hide on a motorcycle. Here there is a suspicion that it was a flying killer squadron that was commissioned by Gota.

Issue with Hybrid and Electric cars. A petrol / diesel car could have saved his life.

in my country, there many shootings committed by black people. This incidents shows similarities between black people and Sr Lankans. I hate those who infight among themselves. Infighting is a reflection existing social problem. Why this is happening?

At this rate our population will go down as mostly are or have underworld connections and there will be less in parliament too.

@ Riya. You must be insane if you yourself believe the nonsense you are saying. Furthermore who gives you the right to threaten commentators here publicly and cowardly anonymously? Are you one of Gota's Assassins yourself?

To Rass :
You're a damn fool bringing skin color to the topic and stereotyping Sri Lankan's, In you're country buggers like you should be put away for good. Damn Idiot!!

Elimination of the underworld is very good for peace lovers but it is a loss for some politicians who live on them.
Jesus Thursday, 06 August 2020 10:06 AM
Cleaning up the underworld for Gota to take over.
Funny thing is underworld guys kill underworld connected people.
But if a regime is taking these measures on public then it's a big problem.
