Navy has seized nearly 85 kilos of what is suspected to be heroin yesterday which was discovered in a multiday trawler vessel following the arrest of four Sri lankans in the seas close to Galle.

Navy media spokesperson, Lieutenant Commander, Isuru Suriyabandara noted that the seized stock has been handed over to the police narcotics bureau for further investigations.

4 Sri Lankans were arrested in the seas close to Galle along with the multiday trawler in which a stock of heroin and HASH were discovered by the navy on the 10th of July.

The following day, nearly 70 kilos of heroin was discovered in the southern seas of Sri Lanka, where 6 Iranians and a foreign fishing vessel were seized by the navy.

Upon suspicion that these two incidents may have a connection, the police narcotics bureau took legal measures.
