Ten Indian nationals who were residing in Kaludewala, Matale were taken into custody by the officials of the Immigration and Emigration Department on Wednesday.

    What about smuggled items sold in open market & houses without paying taxes?

    Roshan Friday, 07 January 2011 05:09 AM

    Are they on Tourist Visas and included in the Tourist Statistics?

    Wonder if those sarees came in to the country with each woman wearing a dozen sarees, so that the Customs could not detect.
