President Maithripala Sirisena has expressed his gratitude to the officers who carried out the raid to seize the largest haul of heroin in Sri Lanka.

The President has stated that this is a noble duty that was fulfilled for the future generations of our country.

A communiqué issued by the President’s Media Division notes that the President has expressed his fullest cooperation and continued blessings for such similar missions in future.

It has come to light that the largest haul of heroin seized in the country’s history, has been smuggled to Sri Lanka from Dubai.

Two suspects were also arrested along with the haul of heroin that was seized from a car park of a Super Market in Colpetty.

Accordingly, Police Narcotics Bureau noted that a broad investigation has already been commenced.

It is also reported that an investigation will be carried out to determine if underworld kingpins Makandure Madush and Kanjipani Imran, who are currently in police custody in Dubai, are involved in smuggling the haul of heroin into the country.

It is reported that facts that suggest so, have come to light.  

294 Kilograms of heroin worth 2.954 Billion Rupees were seized by the Police STF and Police Narcotics Bureau.

This is the largest stock of heroin ever, seized in Sri Lanka.
