The IGP said today that the police are in contact with foreign law enforcement authorities to investigate the recent drug bust in Kalpitiya as they had information to believe that the drugs had been brought in from overseas.

IGP Mahinda Balasuriya told journalists a short while ago that the drug bust in Kalpitiya was the largest drug haul in Sri Lankan history and said the name of the country which it had been brought in from would be divulged soon.

“We have evidence to prove that the drugs were brought form another country and we are currently working with foreign law agencies regarding the matter’. We will divulge the name of the country soon,” the IGP said.

The IGP added that the police would also divulge the name of the foreign agencies they were working with to the media after the investigations were complete.

The Kalpitiya police recently seized 40 kg of herion from Chilaw, the largest ever herion haul to be nabbed in Sri Lanka. The value of the heroin was an estimated Rs. 240 million.

    What great police work, they suspect heroin was brought from overseas...stupid, it has to be brought from overseas as it is not grown/manufactured in SL. What did this guy smoke?

    i think IGP is not aware what he is talking about, of course, drugs are being brought from foreign countries and we do not produce them in Sri lanka.

    U r going away from Chinthanaya my dear IGP. Chinthanaya clearly said no international intervention is needed.

    Your duty is to seek & destroy. Many things are happening within your jurisdiction, are you blind & deaf?

    May be they should arrest the Drug Loads Grandmother

    What do you mean "may have been brought from overseas" ?? Does Srilanka usually produce such drugs?

    Friday, 19 March 2010 08:44 AM

    Aha. So you thought all these time heroin is manufactured here?

    Friday, 19 March 2010 08:56 AM

    What an IGP we have. We do not produce heroine in this country, and it has got to come from a foreign country. Our IGP is probably the only one who doesn't know from where these comes from. What he should really investigate is to check whether this came to fund anyone's election campaign, so that he can fix a panchaayudaya against illicit funding of campaigns.
