The main suspect involved in the smuggling of nearly 220 kg of heroin in Weligama was  identified as a notorious drugs trafficker Nandun Chinthaka alias 'Harak Kata' who is operating in Dubai, Police said.

Last week, the Navy seized 220kg of heroin during a joint operation conducted in Mirissa in Weligama.

Police spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said 11 suspects arrested in connection with the incident were produced before the Matara Magistrate's Court yesterday (14) and detained for questioning for seven days.

In addition to the 11 suspects, two other suspects who were involved in the incident have been arrested in Kottegoda and Dickwella last night (14) for aiding and abetting the drug ring.

    Please clean up all the drug addicts and dealers in Weligama and Mirissa. Its a major menace to local and foreign tourists in the area.

    The Dubai Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf is also operated in dubai. If questioned "Harak Kata" will say 220kg of heroine is not his.

    Before extravagant plans to bring SL to the 21st century, President should start reversing the rapid trend to annihilate all that's achieved sending us back to the middle ages through drug menace.
