Twenty five heroin pellets have been recovered from this suspect, after he was admitted to the Colombo National Hospital.

Another Pakistani who arrived from Karachi was arrested last night, and 26 heroin pellets have been recovered upon admission to the Negombo Hospital.

Meanwhile, the third Pakistani was arrested by the Airport Customs and the Narcotics Bureau, and 20 heroin pellets have been recovered from him.

Police Narcotics Bureau has seized 131 kg of heroin smuggled into the country within the last four months.
