An analysis carried out by the Government Analyst on the 85 kilograms of substance seized by the Police Special Task Force (STF) on June 11 and described as heroin, has indicated that 31 kilograms of it was heroin and the rest extraneous matter, police sources said yesterday.

Police sources said that according to the Analyst’s report only 31 kilos of the material was heroin.

54 of the 85 kilograms seized by the Police Special Task Force (STF) on June 11 and described by them as heroin has turned out to be extraneous matter, the sources said.

The Police Special Task Force (STF) seized 85 kilograms of a substance which they said was heroin with a street value of more than Rs. 680 million when they took into custody a hybrid car and two suspects on the Biyagama Road in Kelaniya on June 11.

Police said the stock was the largest heroin haul seized in the country while being transported over land. (AS)

    It so happens that every time the Police seize heroin, it is seems to be the largest heroin haul seized in the country. With the regular seizure of heroin, it is high time the authorities devise a standard as to which quantity is small, medium and large.

    262 Kilos became 131 and 85 kilos became 31. Who is fooling whom. Did authorities think that the entire population are Ding Dongs?

    There must be RATS as big pussy cats in the Government Analysts Dept and the Police. Heroine turns extraneous matter to make up the skimmed off heroine. Miracle of Asia. via DM iPad app
