Police arrested a businessman who had boasted on an FM radio channel  that he was  the ganja king pin in Ratnapura area and challenged anyone who could to arrest him.

The arrest was made on Tuesday evening with the help of a decoy. The suspect is said to have been a close associate of some politicians and some police officers and as such had been able to carry out his ganja racket for a long time in the Ratnapura town.

At the time of the arrest by the Ratnapura police anti vice squad he is alleged to have in his possession some 12 packets of ganja weighing 21 grams.

The police decoy had visited the suspect’s two-storey house and asked to purchase some packets of ganja. The suspect and a 26-year-old man who was present at the time the deal was being negotiated were taken into custody.

Police sources revealed that this man had also been under surveillance in connection with the investigations into the serial killing at Kotakethana in Kahawatte.

Investigations are being conducted by the Ratnapura police anti vice squad on the instructions of DIG Lalith Jayasinghe and under the direction of SSP Vass Gunawardene. (Ajithlal Shanthaudaya)

    Just arresting the person won't do. He should be interrogated and the main culprit should be exposed and punished severely.
