    Another well-written script and a henchman to sacrifice his life for monetary benefit so that the real culprits can be safeguarded. This is how things work in this so called Democracy.

    Mercy! Lynching in place of judicial killings, encounters instead of capital punishment!

    Murdered? That means chapter close. Real culprit wil be "at large".

    Not a safe way to follow as revenge killings might take place and wrong persons may loose thier lives!

    This just like PSC ruling on impeachment. Jungle law.

    Too good to be true. The witnesses to his confession should be grilled.

    Truth swept under the carpet with one bullet! The innocent, poor sacrifice while the affluent get away!

    Not in a haste dear. How can we make sure that he was the serial killer. Who recorded his final confession? Police stories in Sri Lanka are nothing but fairy tales.

    John Fernandez Saturday, 08 December 2012 06:59 AM

    How do we know for sure that he was a real suspect? Please do not encourage such actions.

    DHA Saturday, 08 December 2012 06:48 AM

    .....sounds fishy hope he was not forced to confess.... where the real killer is out at large....
