Two Sri Lankans were arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) yesterday while attempting to smuggle in four gold slabs worth Rs.10.5 million that they had brought down from Bangkok, Thailand, Customs spokesman Leslie Gamini said.

Customs investigations revealed that one of the suspects had two gold bars weighing 500 grammes each strapped to his legs using gum tape, while the other had two concealed gold bars weighing 500 grammes and 100 grammes in his hand luggage, Mr. Gamini said. The two suspects, aged 26 and 37, from Akurana in Kandy, had been arrested at the arrival lounge of the BIA.

    Police act impartially if the victim is an ordinary citizen. Anyway do not blame the Police for their action.

    Yes according to media operating within the country.

    Until there is a miracle to normalise the Sri Lankan brain, they will continue to vote for whom has hurt them most - It's a curse.

    " Assaulted at the Police Station"
    Police should have shot this thug dead then and there.
    Note with regret, no educated gentlemen like DS, Dudley, Sir John, SWRD, and JR to rule the Country.
