The Sri Lanka Customs today said that it would take action against one of its Superintendents who had allegedly disseminated ‘false news’ about a ship with heroin calling at Colombo, Customs Spokesman Leslie Gamini said.
“There is no such ship on its way to Sri Lanka. One of the Superintendents who had identified himself a Director at the Customs had distributed this news. We are taking action against this official,” Gamini said.
Earlier the said official had told media that the Customs was ready to arrest the ship with heroin allegedly from Afghanistan. (DS & LSP)
