    Didn't a wise man say "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    saman Tuesday, 24 July 2012 08:42 AM

    In Sri Lanka murder and rape do not constitute as crime. So he may be right.

    #Pietersen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:24 AM

    There are number of cases that doesn't appear in these statistics....!!

    shantha madawelass Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:18 AM

    this increase rate is good enough.....

    Ashok Tuesday, 24 July 2012 05:26 AM

    The Secretary has more powers then the minister sitting there

    DR Tuesday, 24 July 2012 06:21 AM

    Police do not record most cases, specialy theft, saying, " If you cannot name any suspect, how can we do the investigation". This is the real situation in the ground. I guess not lesser crimes on books.

    Cyclops Monday, 23 July 2012 12:31 PM

    Give or take a few thousand cases of rape and child abuse!!!

    Yuri Monday, 23 July 2012 08:16 AM

    Yeah i am dreaming......

    Kati Monday, 23 July 2012 08:21 AM

    what about the rapes in the past months aren't those crimes??

    Dil Monday, 23 July 2012 08:25 AM

    Munawwar Tuesday, 24 July 2012 11:22 AM

    R.Dias Monday, 23 July 2012 02:29 PM

    RAPE...MURDER...ABUSE...EXTORTION...ABDUCTION.. WHAT ARE THOSE .?

    Niranj Tuesday, 24 July 2012 11:40 AM

    Mr.Gota that means the news which comes out about brutal murders and rape are all made up stories by the media????

    raj Tuesday, 24 July 2012 03:25 AM

    stats may also show there is no white van abduction or girls being raped in Sri Lanka though media and most people might not agree with it. when we look at the data, we need to analyze the source of the data in order to evaluate its validity.
