The Pakistani national who smuggled 30,000 vials of illegal birth control drug to the country was arrested at the Fort Railway Station today evening.

Director of the Department of Customs Mali Piyasena confirmed the arrest and said that a decoy was deployed to bring down the suspect from his hideout in Wadduwa.
