    Don't blame the country but the Sri Lankans. They are worse than animals. It was not that long ago they found a 5 months infant raped, killed and thrown on the road close to Maradana.

    No, what he was pointing out was our people are more concerned about cattle slaughter but ignore the other crimes happening all over the country.

    The alleged murderer (father-in-law) should be punished with the same way if he is found guilty of this senseless crime by a court of law. via DM Android App
