    What ?

    Why this news is incomplete

    But how could it have happened, unless it was a deliberate act of mischief or sabotage. It couldn't have been due to the severe drought. Railway sleepers have survived the raging sun even in the Sahara!

    This may be sabotage by keft over elements of the defunct LTTE.

    I have observed the famers setting fire to the dried fields. This may have caused to fire. In Sri Lanka most people do not care of the others, that is the cause of most of these problems.
