After questioning a Customs inspector who was arrested near the main entrance of the Colombo Port with eleven drug stamps, the second Customs inspector, who is said to be the main suspect, was arrested with one gram and 210 milligrams of cocaine and two grams and 160 milligrams of kush.

The investigative team said that the father of the arrested main suspect is a well-known lawyer who represents main drug traffickers including Harak Kata, Kawuma and Makandure Madush.
