Leading drug dealer Kanjipani Imran was sentenced to six years of rigorous imprisonment (RI) by Colombo High Court Judge Gihan Kulatunga yesterday after he was found guilty of possessing and trafficking 5.3kgs of cannabis.    

The Attorney General had filed cases against the accused under two counts in connection with the alleged possession of 5.3kgs of cannabis at Maligawatta in 2013.   

He was sentenced to three years rigorous imprisonment under each count to be served separately, after his Attorney Laxman Perera, appearing on behalf of him, announced that his client was ready to admit the accusations.   He was produced before the court while he was being detained at the Colombo Crime Division (CCD).
