    This is shocking. Do we still want the Indians to “build” our roads and airports ? Do we still want to sign agreements with India ?. Kick out all the Indians out of Sri Lanka now !!!. We don’t know how many of them are in Sri Lanka .

    I still can't believe these amatuers could really hatch a plot of this size. There does not seem to have been much secrecy as they have acted so childishly - the Indian going second time to Kumara's residence - almost asking to be arrested.

    We have a super CID that can deal with this shocking revelation coming from this mysterious Indian in custody.The two paromount questions would lead to the plotters.Who in Sri Lanka would immediately and directly benefit from killing the President and the Rajapaksa family ?Which country would gain most strategically from suchkillings ?

    This is purely to kill former His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members, not Maithreepala Sirisena.

    It is becoming hard to believe these news items the way things are getting unfolded

    Indian snakes are already in bed with us. Thanks to Ranil and Co.

    SF with his underworld gangs may be behind this. The missing sniper rifle, grenades in the gutter may all be connected. Add these to the burning hatred and you got a bomb ready to go off.

    Sutha Wednesday, 26 September 2018 10:26 AM

    Are you mad ? Why are you trying to implicate SF when a mysterious Indian with knowledge of this plot is being interviewed by the CID.
