    This show how discipline people of this country including Govt and Opp. Every day some kind of a news murdering someone, robing, kidnapping, frauds and many more wrong doings. Is this the Development of this country Govt is boasting about. Development is not beautifying Colombo, building or renovating roads and build new buildings .... People of this country should decide wisely before its too late

    One of the top cops recently said recently that he would apprehend the thieves of the museum in two weeks.I wonder whether he has been able to bring them to books as he bragged over media!

    Ranjit Saturday, 09 June 2012 02:56 PM

    This is not the first time. Most of the employees at the zoo are rouges. They will do anything to make few bucks. They are not sympathetic for the caged animals. It is high time that the government place these two-legged economic animals in the cage and release the innocent animals to the wilderness.

    Dilshan Silva Monday, 11 June 2012 03:51 AM

    You are on the money. The arrested two were the top two people at the Zoo.

    ibnuaboo Saturday, 09 June 2012 03:16 PM
