Sri Lankan soldier caught smuggling cannabis on Trinco-bound bus

A Sri Lankan soldier was arrested for smuggling cannabis by Vavuniya police on Sunday.

Puliyankulam police station’s officer-in-charge said the solider was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning on a night bus from Jaffna to Trincomalee.

The 24-year-old soldier who is based in a camp in Jaffna was in possession of around 2kg of Kerala ganja.

The increase in drug smuggling in the Northern Province has been due to the protection and patronage of Sri Lanka military forces and police authorities, the TNA MP S. Sritharan said.
