350 kgs of cocaine worth Rs. 6B found from transshipment container


Sri Lanka’s Customs has seized 350 kgs of cocaine with a street value of Rs. six billion from an India-bound transshipment container.

The contraband was concealed in one of four scrap iron containers that had been sent from Panama to Belgium and then to Dubai before their arrival in Sri Lanka.

Customs searched the containers following a tip-off and found the cocaine that has since been handed over to the police narcotics bureau for investigation.
