A rare gem-studded staff considered to have been used by the last king of Sri Lanka Sri Wickrema Rajasinghe was confiscated during an attempt to sell it.

This staff was confiscated by the Central District Crimes Operations Unit when a man attempted to sell it for one million rupees in Manikhinna yesterday.

The suspect who had tried to sell the staff had fled when police tried to arrest him.

The staff is three feet three inches tall and weights almost three kilogrammes.
