The Sri Lanka Navy has seized 13.5 kilogrammes of heroin that was being transported in a fisheries boat in the Northern sea belt.
Naval Media Spokesman Lieutenant Commander Chandima Walakuluge reported that six Indian nationals were taken into custody along with the haul of heroin.
Many Indian trawlers had entered the Sri Lankan waters yesterday and this boat which was transporting heroin had also strayed into the Sri Lankan waters. Since the Navy was suspicious about this boat, the haul of heroin was recovered during an inspection carried out.
The Naval Media Spokesman said that the heroin and the suspects were handed over to the Police Narcotics Bureau.
