A Sub Inspector of the Police Special Task Force (STF) has been arrested by the CID in connection with alleged drug trafficking links.

It was also reported that the CID had questioned the SI over the largest haul of heroin discovered in Sri Lanka which was seized from the Kollupitiya area in Colombo in February last year.
