    Hang the Deraniyagala guilty policemen along with them.They are the very people who promoted and supported these horrendous crimes,for their existence and to drive fear in people for easy control.

    Thank god ! This man had done so many atrocities that such is not even seen in a south indian movie. Murders, robberies, illicit liqour dens , toruture chambers and above all a "rape center". A rape center where he would rape innocent girls in the area. Yahapalanaya government deserves an applause !
