The Colombo High Court on Monday (16) ordered the ASP in charge of Mt-Lavinia police division to submit a report on several misplaced files with regard to a case filed against well-known drug baron Wele Sudha.

The directive was issued after the Attorney General’s Department informed Judge Lalith Jayasuriya that several files of Wele Sudha’s case have gone missing.

Judge Jayasuriya ordered the police to submit the report before 18 March.

The police currently interrogate the drug kingpin under a three months detention order on the details on how he managed to carry out drug related operations. 

Wela Sudha was arrested in Pakistan and later deported to Sri Lanka, in January. Earlier, Parliamentarian Duminda Silva was also interrogated by the police in connection with his alleged involvement with the suspect.

In 2010, Wele Sudha fled the country when the police launched open inquiries into his activities. His assets including two luxury apartments, two houses in Bagatalle Road, two houses in Pannipitiya and Madiwela, 16 perches land in Dehiwala and 14 perches in Nedimale had been confiscated by the Colombo High Court.
