Two Sri Lankan nationals were among three persons arrested in Chennai yesterday (Monday) by Narcotics Control Bureau officials for allegedly possessing 660 grams of heroin, valued at about Indian Rs 60 lakh in the international market.
 

The heroin was seized along with some "incriminating" documents from the three at a hotel in Chennai by officers of NCB South Zonal Unit, Chennai, following a tip-off.
 

Two Sri Lankan nationals --- Ramesh (34) and Kanakasabai alilas Suganthan (31) -- and their associate Mohamed Aslam (32) of Kerala residing in Mumbai were arrested, NCB Zonal Director S Davidson Devasirvatham said in a release last night.
 

He said preliminary investigation revealed that Aslam had brought the narcotic from Mumbai by concealing it in the false bottom of his suitcase and delivered it to Ramesh and Suganthan for onward shipment to Sri Lanka. (PTI)

    Sri Lankans earning badly needed Foreign Exchange for Sri Lanka, and sometimes run the risk of arrest.
    Won't our Lankans learn any lessons from past experiences.

    Congrats to Indian agencies for nabbing these people, who were planning to smuggle narcotics drugs to Sri Lanka. It is a tragedy that most of our SL youth are internationally renowned for fraud, guile and other nefarious activities. Of late they are in the limelight.
