Colombo (News 1st): Six people who were arrested for providing two mobile phones to underworld leader Kanjipani Imran, who is in detention at the Boosa prison, have been remanded until the 25th of this month. The remand order was issued after the suspects were produced before the Galle Chief Magistrate Harshana Kakunuwela.

The inmates were provided with an opportunity to meet with their relatives without obstruction yesterday (September 12) to mark Prisoners Day. The arrested suspects are Kanjipani Imran’s 65-year-old father, his 28-year-old brother, and relatives of Kanjipani Imran’s wife.

When inspecting a food parcel brought for Kanchipani Imran yesterday, authorities detected two mobile phones and two chargers which were concealed in a manner to go undetected during a search. Kanjipani Imran is currently serving six years of rigorous imprisonment on charges of possessing narcotics.
