Upon the revelation made by Hiru News regarding an illicit alcohol brewery plant in Pallewela which resulted in the death of several individuals, the police have inspected the location.

Following inspection, it has been revealed that police had seized a stock of alcohol as well as equipment used for manufacturing.

The samples obtained have been sent to the government analyst as well.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that almost 9 individuals who had consumed alcohol from the place have died as a result.

The owner of the plant and another individual has been arrested and was produced before the Attanagalla magistrate court yesterday and were remanded until Wednesday.

Area residents claim that if the police had conducted proper investigations previously into the matter such a situation wouldn’t have arisen.

However, police media spokesperson SP Ruwan Gunasekera attending a media briefing in Kandy yesterday noted that a special inquiry would be conducted into the Pallewela police station OIC with regard to the incident.
