Police Sergeant in futile attempt to nab drug peddler
BY JAYASINGHE -- COLOMBO
A senior Police officer from the Nugegoda Police Division stated that an effort made by a Police Sergeant to thwart an attempt by a narcotic peddler to flee in a motorcar, carrying two parcels of illegal drugs, had been futile. According to this Police officer, the Sergeant had jumped onto the bonnet of the motorcar to prevent the suspect drug smuggler from fleeing with the drugs.
But, the suspect having driven his car carrying the Sergeant on the bonnet for about a kilometre had then fled the scene after the Sergeant had fallen to the ground. A three-wheeler driver who had attempted to receive the parcels of drugs and who was in the custody of the Sergeant had also fled during the melee.
