A group of CID and Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB) officers is set to leave for Dubai to bring underworld gang leader Nadun Chinthaka aka ‘Harak Kata’ to Sri Lanka in coming days, a senior officer at the CID said.
Harak Kata was arrested on 11 August at the Dubai Airport following a secret joint operation conducted by the Police Narcotics Bureau and the International Police.
The CID official said steps would be taken to bring Harak Kata to the country within 30 days, under Extradition Law.
Accordingly, the Sri Lanka Foreign Affairs Ministry, Attorney General’s Department and the PNB have commenced communicating on the matter with the Dubai authorities.
