    Kelaniya is the place they should raid, where they can catch the king-pins of the drug trade in Sri Lanka.

    Do we have any supposedly Doctors or Silvas in this catch?

    Only 4kg of heroine and lots of small fry, what about the kingpins, some of whom are well known.

    Very nice thing to hear. If the autorities could maintain this operation for the next 2-3 years without giving up, then surely we can hope for a better future for our children. Wellampitiya area is infested with drug dealers and users as well. I know there's a small boutique selling Ganja in Weley-watte and even the thre- wheel guys knows about it. Wish the authorities bust this sale point too.

    Only the sprats are caught but not the KILLER SHARK who raises either his left or the right leg whenever he passes a lamp post in Kelaniya.
