    Delusion at is best. Better to work in reality than virtual reality.

    In this day and age, these clowns still think they can sway the gods to help them - gods may likely punish them for their crimes if such is possible.

    Destroying 100,000 coconuts is a crime itself, arrest these guys

    If they do this to invoke divine intervention then who ever the god they invoke can only strengthen the FCID against crooks because any god should be on the side of justice.

    Worth Agri products wasted for spreading hatred.

    Dilan Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:08 PM

    So they are cursing the officers at the FCID for doing their job but praise family that stole the countries money?

    clueless Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:12 PM

    Coconuts should have been dashed when SF was imprisoned. All crooks of the past must be worried.

    das Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:12 PM

    Pathetic!!!

    Docuk Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:14 PM

    Money laundering, abuse of power is fine but catching them is not?, disgrace and shameful. Sad day indeed to see lawmakers acting this way for cheap political gain.

    Rohini Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:14 PM

    So stupid, foolish....thank god they are not ruling the country now. Even the coconuts that they are dashing are stolen. I wonder who the god they are praying to ?

    Nimal Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:22 PM

    Well said Premalal, Where there is Dharma and the Dharma will win. No need to break 100,000 coconuts - should have given to the poor people.

    Wesko Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:44 PM

    Hi...... all robbed coconuts , no effect.....

    Shukri Saturday, 06 February 2016 02:54 PM

    Dear frauds,If you have given this 100000 coconuts to 100000 pour of this country. may be god would release you from this.

    sameer Saturday, 06 February 2016 03:31 PM

    pathetic, what a waste of money instead they should have fed so many people who are unable to have a proper meal at least then god would have considered there requests......Sad to see our citizens are still believing in clown like these to run the country.......

    karu Saturday, 06 February 2016 03:42 PM

    Well, breaking coconuts is a South Indian Hindu custom which came in as a replacement for animal sacrifice. It is not meant to curse some one or spread anger. These people have an opportunity to prove their innocence in a court of law. Grow up buddies.

    karthi Saturday, 06 February 2016 04:18 PM

    FCID should now investigate as to who and how much was paid for 100,000 coconuts.
