Five people who were staying at the Kataragama Dutugemunu Pilgrims’ Rest were taken into custody by police on suspicion. Kataragama police carried out the raid on a tip off from the public.

Inquiries have revealed that they had been asked to lodge at the Pilgrims’ Rest by a racketeer in Udappuwa area until their turn came to leave for Australia. The suspects were between 23 and 54 years of age and residents from Udappuwa, Vavuniya, Mullaitivu, and Negombo.

A police team has been deployed to arrest the kingpin of the racket.
