A special police team raided a large-scale drug distribution centre which was operating at a luxury apartment complex near the Sri Jayawardenepura Hospital yesterday.
The police media spokesperson stated that the apartment where the operation was being carried out belongs to a Sri Lankan residing abroad.
He added that three women and two men who were packing drugs at the time of the raid were also taken in to custody.
Meanwhile, investigations have revealed that the drug parcel sent to the Colombo Central Mail Exchange was posted from India by the same British national who was arrested when he attempted to clear the parcel.
Police media spokesperson SP Ajith Rohana also explained this investigation.
