    The moment the culprits were arrested they have been given bail!! This is how the law in this country works. Destruction of archaeological sites should be a non-bailable offense and punishment should be the death penalty.

    The gov. Should punish all these culprits n preserve all those archeological sites in the Island. It's strange that all those wise men are silent.

    Unfortunately we are not in a position to protect archaeological sites.Best solution is to handover these sites properly to the forces.If not nothing will remain in next 10 years.Even though constitutional changes come archaeological sector should be remain with central government.
