    Bloody criminal...

    K Singh Saturday, 04 January 2020 08:14 PM

    Didn't Ranjan see the police planting a pistol? Am sure he is no fool to keep an unlicensed weapon in his official bungalow. Pathetic performance by the Sri Lanka Police.

    There could be other MPs who possess firearms without a license. Please catch them all !!!

    He says that the weapon was issued by the government. Still he should have behaved decently with the law enforcement officers rather than creating a bias cope.

    Ram Saturday, 04 January 2020 09:22 PM

    This could be a fabrication the police search team would have introduced

    johan Saturday, 04 January 2020 09:50 PM

    Chryshan K. Saturday, 04 January 2020 09:54 PM

    Only those who spoke against the present regime is being arrested. Probably before election. People expected govt to arrest CB Bond robbers and those responsible for April 21st Attack. Oh sin fir voters who brought them into power.
