    i believe this is actually a master plan to set up STF camp there. the local police has done good job but they have been punished by transferring them. they are covering up the actual scene here. wait and see the real outcomes.

    I wonder what the diaspora would say about Military Camps.

    Setting up a Camp alone is not enough, they have to do patrolling in the area specially at night time

    What is needed is not many camps but some power to overpower hidden forces.

    leelananda Monday, 05 November 2012 06:42 AM

    why only one, have as many. at least some people will get jobs. but want stop killings. all these killing has some political connection.

    Managala Monday, 05 November 2012 06:17 AM

    Too late for the decision this step should have been taken at the first incident. May be now what criminals needed was accomplished as it is the common practice to setup everything when it is least needed...

    Kasun Monday, 05 November 2012 02:44 AM

    Why did Police take such time to take this decision..?? Anyway I hope this chain of murders will stop hereafter and the criminals will take to the court...

    Matalan Monday, 05 November 2012 05:41 AM

    Every possibility that STF camps will be a norm throughout the country soon, the way crimes are increasing like in Galle.

    bandara Monday, 05 November 2012 04:36 AM

    so the local police are useless

    nilu Monday, 05 November 2012 04:36 AM

    Police officer who investigated the incident was transfered and now setting a STF camp, who are they trying to fool

    This is very good. Thank you very much. via DM Android App

    Yohan Perera Monday, 05 November 2012 04:12 AM

    Not to offense. I don't see how setting up an STF camp could help stopping criminals. Hope the police department has a good plan in hand. ( I know nothing about crime investigation after all. )

    Gon Haraka Monday, 05 November 2012 03:47 AM

    I thought the Police said Kahawatta Case was closed and all murderes were behind Bars ?

    resplendant Monday, 05 November 2012 03:34 AM

    Even somewhat late, a good decision nevertheless . STF will sort this out.

    sayed Monday, 05 November 2012 03:30 AM

    Master plan to set up an STF camp worked out.

    Semasinghe Monday, 05 November 2012 03:02 AM

    Police and Army HQs have to be taken to Kahawatte ..
