    This is a serious threat to national security. Whether Sri Lankan or foreigners must be severely dealt using the legal system.

    Places like airport must be secured with parameter security which detects any un-identified flying objects and neutralizes them ASAP. please protect our airport

    Presumably it is with such security measures they detected this offence, Basic.
