    He is not a businessman but a Director of an Apparel Co. A gentleman and really sad, the life long savings of his just lost & the shock was too much for him to handle. RIP my friend

    I pray for his soul and strength to his family members. Truly saddened by this incident and condolences to the bereaved family.

    He should have taken proper precautions with such a large amount of money. Keeping or transporting such a large amount is simply asking for trouble.

    Saying this somewhat a consolation, but does this actually happen...especially in Sri Lanka. Today all our legislatures are involved insome form of criminality directly or indirectly, but are the most happiest of happy devils.

    Please do not justify the action of robbers. If poverty can bring people's mind into this state, the entire population living in Mumbai should be robbers. Yet, they are not.............

    Please have mercy on them. What else can they do under the present economic circumstances for survival? Even the Police have to kill people for money!
