It was revealed today that 202,777 locals and 230 foreigners have been taken into custody for drugs such as heroin, Kerala ganja and cocaine from 2010 to September 20 this year.

Chief Government Whip Gayantha Karunathilaka told Parliament that 4,399 kgs of heroin, 1,631 kgs of Kerala ganja and 1,913 kgs of cocaine had been taken into custody between this period.

He said this in response to a question raised by JVP MP Nalinda Jayatissa on the quantity of drugs taken into custody during the said period of time. He also stated that the seized drugs were destroyed in the presence of the magistrate on a court order. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Our young people go mainly for Kerala. The confiscated much higher amount of heroin and cocain shows that there are many consumers among the upper class and also that most of these heavy drugs are again exported. So import and export are definitly in the hands of VIP s. via DM Android App

    As much scrutiny is placed on grammar of the comments by readers I suggest you guys check your own grammar this should read as of 2010 instead of from 2010

    This means out of 20 million people living in the country, 1% of them are drug addicts. Pathetic situation.
