April 13, Colombo (LNW): In a major operation, the Sri Lanka Navy has intercepted two multi-day fishing trawlers off the southern coast, seizing approximately 200 kilograms of suspected heroin and crystal methamphetamine, commonly known as ‘Ice’. The operation led to the arrest of ten crew members found aboard these vessels.

The trawlers were detected during a special naval operation aimed at curtailing the drug trade in the region. Both vessels are currently being escorted to Galle Harbour, where the suspects will be handed over to the authorities for further investigation.
