    Unlike in Mexico there is room in Sri Lanka for only one cartel. Whoever disobeys them is eliminated.

    Wiping off competition .......

    You point to something very important. In more democratic countries with more disciplined police and more independent justice systems, they will try their best to capture people alive. This is not only because someone is considered innocent until proven guilty but also he/she may be able to reveal more information leading to the capture of others.

    Eradicate all Drug Dealers for a better future.

    Dickie Bird Saturday, 06 September 2014 07:32 AM

    Should have gathered information of drug kingpins and them bumped him off......
    Police would have got more boquets for such an act.

    "Police wiping out the competitors of their political masters?" A strong possibility................

    Then, the top drug kingpins will have to give orders to the police to kill themselves.

    For sure he is not backing from the government. That was the reason for his death. Other wise MR will appear to save him like he did for Lansa in Ja ela.

    Fair N Square Saturday, 06 September 2014 02:03 AM

    Wonder what happened to the phrase"innocent until proven guilty" what if he was not involved in drug pedalling? 2 days back 2 brothers who served 30 years in jail for rape n murder in usa were released... Coz of being imprisoned wrongfully... what right did the Excise dept officer have to shoot to kill someone who was not armed and wasn't a threat to the officers life? So much for human lives... Oh btw duminda n mervin r swimming so freely....sharks swim away while sprats get in the net....

    ananda Saturday, 06 September 2014 01:48 AM

    if you do not pay your taxes (protection) you get killed

    Phantom Saturday, 06 September 2014 01:41 AM

    Did Kudu Laalitha know too much, a risk that he'd talk if apprehended and hence silenced?

    Top drug guy is deciding the fate of our country and children.

    Concerned Citizen Friday, 05 September 2014 05:50 PM

    The Politicos who bring in the 'Kudu" should be bumped off first.

    Silpa Friday, 05 September 2014 05:38 PM
