The Navy recently arrested three individuals with 118 kilos of Kerala ganja worth more than Rs.12 million in the seas off Point Pedro. 


The suspects aged between 32 and 36 were identified as residents in Jaffna and Mannar. The Navy suspects the haul of cannabis, concealed in 48 packs, might have been smuggled from India by a small craft.  


The crew of a Cedric boat attached to the Northern Naval Command had made the arrest whilst on patrol.     


The suspects along with the haul of cannabis and a small craft were handed over to the KKS Police.
