A large-scale fuel racket, committed while distributing fuel to Northern Province was exposed by the Special Investigation Unit of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation.

It was exposed during a raid carried out with Hiru CIA.

The fuel to be distributed in the North is stored at Vavuniya after being transported from Colombo.

It was revealed a group of racketeers has stolen fuel from those storing facilities.

Although at the end of each week, the remaining stock should be informed to the CPC, the staff had not informed the exact amount to the CPC.

Thereafter, they have distributed those fuel using bowsers owned by a parliamentarian from the North and earned money.

The CPC Investigators apprehended 2070 liters of fuel being transported fraudulently.

Nine suspects were also arrested.
