    Good job. However he can't do it by himself the way the murders were committed.

    Check points are easy targets for the gun men so the officers at the check points should be very vigilant otherwise they are like a lame ducks siting on a tree branch. The department should use the technology to detect the approaching dangers. The duty hours should not be more than 4 hours as in the air traffic control rooms.

    The way things unfolds one after other like namal kumara matter and now at this political stage looks suspicious and looks like a plot is underway to justify the govt change.
