    The revenue is probably not enough to cover even the airfare! Look for an alternative explanation when things do not add up. I think he is an Indian spy.

    I personally know many 2,3 peoples who do the same. They sell sarees and they earn a decent amount of money ! With a decent profit margin. Do some research before commenting

    We get visa on arrival from 2 countries. Indians get from 30. Complain to the UN!

    Sri Lanka and India do not want to operate any cruise service because it would badly hit their airlines that make a killing from poor passengers.

    If this allowed to continue, the local businesses will be affected.

    Is the word competitive price comes to your mind yet ? what’s wrong with the Indians selling sarees in SLK ? The man did not over stay his visa …. We have present and past politicos stole billions without paying a red cent as tax .. but police goes after the wrong people.

    It's good to see our ever so efficient police resources being used for small crimes like visa violations instead going after real criminals.
