A consignment of heroin weighing nearly 10kg has been seized from Kotikawatte area, says the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD).

The haul was recovered based on the information divulged by the notorious underworld figure and drug kingpin ‘Makandure Madush’ during interrogations.

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had transferred Madush to the custody of CCD on Friday (16), for further investigations into the cases filed against him.

Madush was previously under the custody of the Dubai authorities after being arrested at a drug-fuelled party thrown by him in a Dubai hotel, back in October 2018.

He was deported from on May 05, 2019 and was taken into the custody of the CID upon his arrival at the BIA.
