Then the STF had arrested a 29-year-old woman, a 25-year-old person and the driver of the van.

Later they were taken to Negombo Hospital.

Altogether, gold worth around Rs. 4 million was recovered from the suspects and they had visited Mumbai twice a week.

They have undertaken this illegal act for a long period and they are residents of Grandpass and Kotahena.
