COLOMBO (News 1st); A special search operation conducted by the Navy at Mannar Sand Banks on the evening of 02nd August 2022, led to the seizure of about 47kg and 240g (wet weight) of Kerala cannabis.

The seizure was made by SLNS Thammanna in the North Central Naval Command when conducting a special search operation at Mannar Sand Banks on 02nd August. The consignment which included 19 packages had been buried in the area by smugglers and the stock weighed about 47kg and 240g (wet weight).

It is believed that the smugglers might have concealed this stock of Kerala cannabis underground, without being able to take it away due to naval operations in the area.

The gross street value of seized Kerala cannabis is believed to be around Rs. 14 million and the stock has been kept in naval custody until it is produced for onward legal action
