    Years ago, we used to hear crime related stories from Dehiwala, Ratmalana, Moratuwa, Panadura etc., Now Maharagama, Kottawa, Athurugiriya, Habarakada keep popping up and not those others. Why ?? Is it the efficiency of policing in those areas or criminals have found safe havens in latter cities due to lack of policing ????

    Why this suddenly Matara becoming center of attraction for Crime. Is this a strong area of MR and his supporters are gaining power.
