    Nobody is above the law. Please do not let these thugs take the law into their hands as was done in the past by people calling themselves Buddhist monks.

    Agree, hope he is remanded like the rest and not let out on bail, making a mockery of our justice.

    yahapalana is cheating without punishing the correct thugs who did the crime. Police have arrested only the on-lookers of this incident not the real thugs as adviced by yahapalanaya
