A 50-year-old Indian national who attempted to smuggle 220 grams of crystal methamphetamine -an illegal drug- worth over Rs. 6 million into the country was arrested by the Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB) at the Bandaranaike International Airport last night, Police said.
PNB officials suspect that this stock of drug may have been brought to be used in reputed night clubs in Colombo and other urban areas.
The methamphetamine is an expensive drug used in European countries, the PNB officials said.
The suspect is to be produced in the Minuwangoda Magistrate’s Court today. (T.K.G. Kapila)
