Colombo, Feb 27 (Daily Mirror) - Two persons arriving on a motorcycle near a hotel (Pearl Beach) along Marine Drive in Wellawatte fired shots into the air before fleeing, police said.

They said that the persons in question fled after firing a T-56 firearm into the air.

    There would be many in whose hands are T56's. Let's not jump to such hasty conclusions. The drug scene is supposed to be getting tight with the much reduced stock for peddling these days, and said to be reflected in the street price.

    So nowhere is safe to live in Sri Lanka? National security is at threat.

    OMG ! Don’t bring the ‘national security’ number into the picture. Remember Nov 2019? - people wanted to forego food for the sake of national security and in 2 years- everyone was hungry!

    The drug scene is pretty tight. Supply chain disruptions.

    Freedom of movement is at risk with crime everywhere. New IG attending court to defend himself as his first job. Where are we heading?
