An individual, who is said to be the younger brother of well-known drug baron Wele Sudha, has been arrested by the Kohuwala police and found 2 g and 300 mg of heroin in his possession.

Acting on a tip-off, the suspect was arrested on Sunday (17) morning, the police Spokesperson said.

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.
