We, the general public should not forget that there are a sizeable amount of trained firearm handlers ( mostly de-listed from the armed forces) roaming around us on fast mo-bikes as snatch thieves.They pick up scent of cash movements probably from insiders,wait for their prey and execute their plan to perfection.As a precaution why cannot we seek police armed escort?
Here we go again. The Sherlock holmes of Sri Lanka has already solved the crime. Next thig we know MR will be blamed for it.
