‘Demand For Heroine In Sri Lanka Has Doubled’ – Indian Narcotice Bureau

By Colombo Telegraph –

Enforcement agencies have sounded an alert on drug cartels using Kochi as a transit point for smuggling heroin to Sri Lanka, where the demand for the contraband has doubled in the past one year, Times of India reports.

Agencies have been asked to track carriers from West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar arriving in the city to hand over heroin consignments to agents, who in turn smuggle it to Sri Lanka. Top sources in the narcotics control bureau(NCB) told Times of India that the demand for heroin in Sri Lanka had increased to nearly 1,000 kg/year and drug rackets in India are the main suppliers.

In the wake of enforcement agencies upping their surveillance in Tamil Nadu- which has been a major routing point for drug traffickers – drug cartels have shifted its focus to Kerala where it can use migrant labourers as carriers. “Enforcement agencies have recently cracked the activities of a cartel by arresting five people including two women and a Sri Lankan national from Chennai for attempting to smuggle 6.4 kg of heroin to Sri Lanka,” an official said.

    One more dubious record of the Rajapakse regime. The Kudu Mervins, Dumindas, Bharatha Luxmans, Sumapthipalas, Fernandopulles – Ministers and Advisors of the Rajapakse cabal – have ensured even school children become pushers and addicts. But these men build mansions, run around in luxury SUVs and some of them send their children abroad for studies “to take over” from Thathi later.
    Drug traffickers are protected from arrest and legal action by the politicians within the system; the Police and relevant officials are all “on the take” while families in the city, suburbs and even rural areas are in turmoil because the new generation are becoming Cold Turkeys. A once decent society has turned turtle within five years.

    ….I have my doubts if the Ceylon Tobacco Company is also using some of it to blend into the the cigarettes that they sell….
    They can be working with the drug lords too… as most smokers complain of high chemical content in cigarettes lately…
    A good reason why the CTC cannot offer affordable cigarettes while Tobacco companies of neighbouring countries can do it…..
