The Spokesman said the vessel was being escorted to Galle Harbour for further investigations.   


The Navy suspects that the Sri Lankan multi-day fishing trawler which was apprehended on Wednesday in the seas off Galle along with four crew members and narcotic samples on-board, had links with the foreign fishing vessel that was taken into custody by the navy yesterday.   


The suspects and narcotics were to be handed over to the Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB). Investigations are continuing to ascertain the nationality of the arrested suspects.
