The Teldeniya Police has uncovered a scam in which people were robbed after being intoxicated.

The Police Media Spokesperson’s Office said that the scam came to light following a confession made by three suspects who were arrested on charges of robbing an individual who arrived from Qatar of his money and jewellery.

The individual had this harrowing experience in Oruththota, Teldeniya.

Three suspects were arrested after they had dragged, beaten and thrown the victim out of the vehicle while he was travelling from Katunayake to Pottuvil.

Another suspect in the incident had fled the scene.

Police said that the victim who lodged a complaint with the police is currently being treated at the Teldeniya Hospital.
