    The sniffer dog went in a circle and walked right into the Police station itself.

    It was then they knew a cop had stolen the firearms.

      Lanken police stations should be provided all teh IT support so that they can register each and every name of the inhabitant living in the area.

      The kind of issues can be done by asking some school going (alevel) students to collect them job as their project work…. of course sponsored by govt bodies.. meaning using avilable labor.

      When police has got date about families, the data bases can caupture data about thepeople… that can help tracing any crime occurences laters… the world is become a small village through revolution of internet.

      in a counrty where almost all kinf war activies went on for 30 years, can have the varied kind of criminals. Now with Last regime being led lanken youth to get easily addicted by hard drugs, the crimes have on a rapid increase.

      All the free moving weapons should be collected and nationlized by the state.. this should be done as a living process. All the army desrters should be closely studied not allowin them to lead criminal gangs:

    it is crazy, the police is stealing in a police station! what a pathetic status in the country. how can these bastards curb criminality in the country? interdiction is not enough, they should be remanded and they should be dismissed from the post. But this country is a country of dogs and anything is possible.

    Inept and mentally bankrupt fools lauding over us.

    My two cents worth – a Gem Mudalai would have paid a very good sum to
    a Policeman of this Station and arranged to have those on duty drowned
    in alcoholics -on the pretext of New Year times when they get loaded.

    So watch out for Policemen in touch with Gem Dealers in the area Mr. CID.
