    Very sad, He has no one to talk to. people need to speak to someone about their problems. This is depression.

    IndependenT Wednesday, 11 December 2013 08:49 AM

    Mr. Praneeth Silva your comments are totally irrelevant to this tragedy.

    Suicide Wednesday, 11 December 2013 10:36 AM

    People commit suicide for mainly financial difficulties.. people in any country with a high suicide / homicide rate should blame the government. You think if a man enjoyed life like a president or minister of Sri Lanka he will commit Suicide?

    Kola Kanda Wednesday, 11 December 2013 10:38 AM

    May be he had to Pay KOLA KANDA tax to the politcians

    Gus Gemba Wednesday, 11 December 2013 11:11 AM

    Cost of living has just become unbearable. People are suffering and small scale businesses are suffering. Don't blame him if it's suicide. Rip.
