    Very good news. If what happened to Vidya had happened to his daughter, how you he feel?

    Yes rid the Police of these corrupt officers who were nurtured in the past to bring disrepute to the entire Police.

    How was he promoted to the post of DIG . Most of the DIGs seem to have been ironically culprits by degrading the already degraded police force by Rajapakesa regime in order to have their illegal ,immoral bidding carried out .
