Police said that the suspect had confessed that he had hidden several kinds of intoxicants used for the manufacturing of babul including dyed arecanut, tobacco and dates in a house in Wellampitiya.

The suspect was produced before the Maligakanda Magistrate Court. The police are conducting further investigations.

    Drug Lords and pushers should be executed by firing squad. They are mass murderers because they are destroying our children, our next generation of adults.
