A Chinese national was taken into custody by the Bambalapitiya Police today when he was found brewing illicit liquor (Kasippu) in a room on the third floor of an apartment in Bambalapitiya.

At the time of the arrest, the suspect was in possession of 650 litres of Goda, 160 litres of illicit liquor, 168 sticks of foreign cigarettes and other equipment used to brew arrack, police said.  

Investigations revealed that the suspect had been living in Puttalam for two years, and had shifted to Bambalapitiya about an year ago.

Police said the suspect had distributed liquor (in cans) to hotels and construction sites islandwide for the consumption of Chinese nationals working in Sri Lanka. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    The Chinese people should ask the local kassipu guys how to get about it.All hard workers need a bit of alcohol after a heavy days work.The first signs of trouble, temporary insanity if gone wild, create more problems. Give them mendis or arrack, or chinease brewed in china.

    So the Chinese are learning the Sri Lankan way. They also understand the high cost of liquor in Sri Lanka and producing a lo cost product for his nationals as well. Whats wrong in it.
