    There are inaccuracies in reporting here. The first paragraph says three persons were arrested while transporting drugs in a motor car. Subsequently it says the teacher was arrested while riding a motorbike and the others while selling drugs in Seeduwa area. Shouldn't a national newspaper be more accurate in its reporting?
