COLOMBO (News1st): Three suspects were arrested over a sand racket carried out using permits filled out with erasable ink in Mannar on Thursday.

Licences to transport sand had been filled out using a pen containing carbon ink that disappears when exposed to heat, allowing the alteration of the expiry date.

Officials said this has caused a loss of Rs 50,000 to the government.
