Two more individuals, who were arrested in Dubai along with notorious drug kingpin Makandure Madush, were detained by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials for questioning upon arrival at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) after being deported from Dubai, police said.   


Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said the duo identified as Piyal Pushpakumara (50) a resident of Aaraama Road in Dematagoda and Mohammad Afreed Mohammad Inham (22), a resident of Palamulla, Gamagewatte in Kolonnawa, were the two detained.   


“Piyal Pushpakumara was in Dubai on a resident visa and had been there since 2000. He had reportedly visited Sri Lanka once before on May 10, 2018. Mohammad Inham, a nephew of the right hand man of Madush, Mohommad Najim Mohammad Imran alias Kanjipani Imran, had gone to Dubai on January 7, 2018, on a tourist visa,” he said.   
Meanwhile, six more individuals who were arrested along with Makandure Madush, who were deported from Dubai on Wednesday morning, were taken into custody by the CID when they arrived at the BIA on SriLankan Airlines Flight UL 226, the Police Spokesman said.   


“The deported suspects were identified as, Mohammad Rizan Mohammad Badhurdeen, Nilan Romesh Samarasinghe, Mohammad Jabeer, R. Suresh Wasantha, H. Rupadasa Simon and Mawathage Dayan Buddhima Perera.   


“Nilan Romesh Samarasinghe was produced before the Negombo Magistrate and was ordered to be remanded until April 22. He was also ordered to be produced before the Matara Magistrate on the same day in relation to another case. Mawathage Dayan Buddhima Perera was handed over to the Colombo Crime Division (CCD) for further questioning,” he said.   
The remaining four suspects, who were arrested on Wednesday (17) had been released yesterday after questioning by the CID BIA Branch.   
Thirty-one suspects including Makandure Madush, singer Amal Perera and his son Nadeemal were arrested at a luxury hotel in Dubai on February 4. Thus far, a total of 23 individuals who were being held by the Dubai Police, have been deported to Sri Lanka intermittently.
