    Good work, This will also be a good case for phsycological students to reserch this guys mindframe. this is simply not being a killer, much much more.

    If police knows who the murderer is then easy to apprehend like in this case. But many other cases not the same. This guy looks like an obvious suspect.

    In US if a politician interfere with police work, that politician will be in jail

    Don't forget mate. This is Miracle of Asia. Suspects and murders are always visible in this country but the innocents.

    Abdul Friday, 24 August 2012 09:15 AM

    well done Police, it clearly shows if politicians are not involved we will have an efficient police service which will ultimately help to maintain law & order, anyone listening

    Daya Friday, 24 August 2012 09:04 AM

    We want the full report on the case to understand what leads to the triple murder. Actually who did and how he did it to avoide such cases in future. Anyway applause to police force for tracking him down and arrest the main suspect.

    I am ever amazed at the cynicism and general contrariness of the people who comment on news stories such as this one.
    For goodness' sake, give credit when it is due, and shut up about unrelated cases!!

    Anil Friday, 24 August 2012 07:02 AM

    Quick Work. But it took so long to catch the Museum robbers or the murderer of Baratha lakshman

    Dalu Banda Friday, 24 August 2012 08:33 AM

    Catch the museum robbers?

    Dilendra Fernando Friday, 24 August 2012 08:17 AM

    Calm down mate, your police force is the best. Only thing, they cannot help but dance to a certain drum beat. LOL.

    TRUTH Friday, 24 August 2012 07:58 AM

    This is Sri Lanka Man, Miracle of Asia.. Why compare with USA

    Freedom Friday, 24 August 2012 07:56 AM

    good job....now we know why the police don't act fast......

    Roshan Friday, 24 August 2012 08:04 AM

    Murder suspect wanted by Police, just travelling in the bus?

    ANTON Friday, 24 August 2012 08:12 AM

    This triple murder disease is spreading from Kahawatte sinhalease to Wellawatte Tamils and next seemsto be Orugodawatte Muslims.

    NE Friday, 24 August 2012 07:52 AM

    Readers who criticise everything done by SL police please note that in US there are many unresolved murders of high profile people including the murder of former president John Kennedy although they put a guy behind bars. The famous Holywood actress Natalie Wood who died of drowning in 1981 while in a boat with her husband not yet concluded.

    RamUk Friday, 24 August 2012 07:48 AM

    I am sure if the police has freedom they will act very fast in any case. this will support the case of bring back public police commision a body only answerable to its commision not the govt

    Real Peace Friday, 24 August 2012 07:12 AM

    Such an efficient police force, but many, many other murders and disappearences remain unsolved.........!!!
