    past 6 months is good for the police. they hav been keen on their feet against these ruthless criminals as it should been. Im sure the suspect will take them to show his hidden weapons after 2 3 days (or maybe before that). via DM Android App

    You hit the nail on the head my dear.....

    As everyone guessed here, He is dead after a police shooting. We know what is happening but dont see anything wrong with it.

    Otherwise culprits be able to escape when not able to prove.

    But as someone else said it is important others who are close to Govt like Kahawatte people also punished.
