    shows absolutely no shame or remorse

    Mohamed Tuesday, 25 June 2013 01:21 PM

    Oh what a shame being a 2nd most high ranking police officer in the country? I cant understand how he could smile with all these, he is so cool bcz he is a cold blooded murderer? Anyways according to the victims lawyers statement it looks like this case might be discharged with the high hand government support as he said attorney general is not giving cooperation to this case. we all know what is happening in police and courts now a days in SL and who's hands are behind? what a country this is turning to be? all dangerous criminals and drug lords are released and innocents are jailed? very nice just society? God Bless Mother Lanka???

    Sim Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:36 AM

    He can sill smile

    kautilya Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:37 AM

    This look like a Home and Home match end up in a Draw.
    We Punchisingho's are wasting time to read the news.

    Mahinda Mamaa Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:08 AM

    Maximam Punishment should be for him

    Ben Hurling Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:08 AM

    He has too many secrets. He knows he will be released eventually by rulers. He is not worried. His smile is ominous. God bless Sri Lanka.

    keith Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:09 AM

    chi lajja nathi balla....

    Fair N Square Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:41 AM

    He was involved in many murders... worthless spending TAX payers money on a court drama , clothe him, feed him.. not forgetting the hospitalization... Kill him before many more lives will BE LOST.. he HAS ALREADY THREATENED A "sitting ASP" SO HE WILL TAKE REVENGE FROM NOT JUST HIM BUT MANY.. 1 sorry life lost to save many more is a risk worth taking...

    ANTON Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:42 AM

    HE IS SHOWING THAT HE IS HAVING TWO HORNS.

    janaka Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:11 AM

    We have no faith in our Police Department. All are criminals
    How can we trust them to investigate the real criminal activity. Shame on DIG and now his wife is threating the others Who the hell is she. I don't know how they can face there relation and friends. It is very shameful and disgrace.

    mikee Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:45 AM

    The inner fear is clearly portrayed by his smile.

    The God Father Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:12 AM

    We need a police officer who can make the head line tomorrow as "murder suspeect tried to escape and was shot in the head".

    Critic Roshan Tuesday, 25 June 2013 01:45 PM

    It seems that the way he is pointing the finger, he shows the public "With this finger only I pulled the trigger and killed not only the businessman and all the other disappeared men as well".

    mahinda hordagoda Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:29 AM

    All police officers and constables are not second to each other . Firstly bad selection compared to early days ( two. ) do not know to talk to Tax payers who are their masters . They want to make the public think that they are the Masters of Law. They are been paid a commission and charges are framed the way they like cause trying to fight out means more money spent on lawyers. Wise to plead guilty and pay off.

    mataraman Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:55 AM

    KALA KALA DE PALA PALA DE

    ONE TIME HE DID HAND CUFFED TO OTEHR CRIMINALS AND THIS TIME IT IS TO HIM.

    Mohan das Tuesday, 25 June 2013 02:20 PM

    Karma is going to get him

    Ranjith Silva Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:02 AM

    The Death Penalty to be revoked to maintain discipline in our country for sake of our children.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:05 AM

    Even MR wears white, still.

    Rajathuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:07 AM

    You are punished because you did not give me my share.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:09 AM

    Actually he is showing two fingers, which means their are two whom these fingers are going to "go up", you know where!!

    riznul Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:09 AM

    end of the day he will be released due to lack of evidence,, mark ma words,,,

    god save mother lanka,,,

    Jagath Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:10 AM

    Disgrace for the other DIG's you should be taken to Gallface and given the same SaudiArabia punishment...Shame on the SL Police

    Silva de Mervin Tuesday, 25 June 2013 11:32 AM

    Smile and confident show that he is sure of his freedom soon.

    Concerned Tuesday, 25 June 2013 11:35 AM

    What is he smiling about? Does he know something we dont?

    Concerned Tuesday, 25 June 2013 11:36 AM

    What is he smiling about? Know something we the public don't know?

    Roy Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:01 AM

    High time to expose the murderers taking cover behind the much publicised offence of abusing and forcing a teacher to kneel before a politician.

    OMG Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:05 AM

    What goes around come around.

    Mikee Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:07 AM

    He may be trying to say by pointing his fingers that he will fire all those who took him to task after his release.

    mahaweli Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:17 AM

    Daily Mirror/ Kithsiri, to me, first picture is really with a professional touch.

    LonwaboTsotsobe Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:17 AM

    to be honest his smile looks a bit psycho.

    Minister Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:28 AM

    All are with gloomy faces except once!

    Padma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:13 AM

    According to the Lord Buddha preach everything is changing and uncertain.
    Today king might become a beggar tomorrow. We must learn a lesson from this situation

    TreeHouse Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:14 AM

    Look how cool his smile..

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:15 AM

    The beauty is the smile, after committing crime.

    donkey Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:16 AM

    He might become a minister or high commissioner very soon

    Eva Tuesday, 25 June 2013 12:51 PM

    I think he will be Released soon look @ that smile he knows the big shots will bail him out. This bugger must be Hanged.

    Ranjit W. Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:47 AM

    Civilized countries bar alleged criminals under police custody to wear neck ties until they are freed in order to protect the accused from committing suicide. This shows our legal system. Yes, one day he will be posted as the ambassador to either China or Iran.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:47 AM

    The phrase ' you sow what you reap' is also quite relevant here.

    wijebahu Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:24 AM

    its a real killer smile. ha. ha. haaa.

    zavahir Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:26 AM

    Everything is cool near future.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:49 AM

    buffaloa is fixated on MR...poor animal!

    wow wow Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:29 AM

    now days very funny things going on. all criminals are coming from the jail with Tie and coat people to show like very polite and decent man as if never have done harm to anyone.

    Dilani Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:52 AM

    How can a person kill another? Are they humanbeing?? He should be hanged.

    Yehiya Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:54 AM

    Who brought to this place send to this place.Goverment servant never fall to short cuts.This is good example.

    sara Tuesday, 25 June 2013 07:32 AM

    Why are these murderers were ties in courts. Is it a requirement?? or are they trying to tell us that they are from good families and blamed unreasonably.

    mohamed asfar Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:55 AM
