    He needs to be suspended otherwise he will try to manipulate and even mutilate the evidence not forgetting the famous weapon of intimidation and thuggery found in this country by State Entitities.

    If this kind of action had been taken in the 70s,the Tamil youths would not have revolted against Sri Lanka. At that time in the late 60s and early 70s we had an egoistic Tamil Superintendent of Police in Jaffna who completely ignored Police assaults on civilians in order to get a good name for him with the South.
