The CID recorded statements on Tuesday from 21 persons involved in campaigning for MP Duminda Silva.

Police Media Spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana, says that three teams are conducting investigations, based on the statements that have been recorded.

Twenty six (26) tractors, suspected to have been used to smuggle heroin into the country, were discovered in Sinharamulla, Kelaniya on Monday, based on information gleaned from the detained drug baron ‘Wele Suda’.

The Police Media Spokesperson noted that the building in question had been rented by a British national who had established a business there.

News 1st made inquiries from the Customs Department regarding the importation of tractors to the country in this manner. They said that about two tractors can be placed in a single container.

Customs also pointed out that while vehicles are scanned, any drugs that may be hidden within, would not be caught in the inspection.

Customs pointed out that more investigations are carried out only if there is a complaint or suspicion.
