Special Task Force has seized a container with a stock of over 1,000 bottles of smuggled foreign liquor and illegally imported drugs at Egodawatte in Nugegoda.

The investigations found that the importer, who was arrested later, had not paid the duties for the consignment.

Meanwhile, a Chinese couple was arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport while trying to smuggle in 44,600 cigarettes of various brands.

The estimated value of the haul was Rs. 2.23 million.

The Chinese national was employed at a project in Hambantota.

Sri Lanka Customs said that the suspects were released after imposing Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 20,000 fines respectively.

The illegal consignment was forfeited.
