The racketeers were arrested following a complaint filed with Anuradhapura police  by a Kandy businessman.

The racketeers have ensnared the businessman convincing him that a man from the North had in his possession a large amount of US dollars, from during the war and he is now afraid to exchange the currency into rupees.

The businessman was convinced to pay 900 thousand rupees to the racketeers having promised the businessman that in return he would receive US dollars ,to the value of 1.5 million rupees.

The businessman complained to police as the racketeers did not return with the promised dollars.
