    Good that the criminals were caught, but sad that the Sri Lankan police have such stupid officers.

    Follow the rules of Arabia - Destry them immediately without any hearing after confiscating all of their assets. What do they expect from their own children? Do not give any sympathy. They are supposed to save the country, now destroying it.

    The criminals how well they plan always leave a clue to the detectives. This appear to be a criminal corporation within the Police service
