June 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police Special Task Force and the Criminal Investigation Department which investigate the seizure of a large supply of heroin recently from Kelaniya close to Colombo have found that the stock belonged to two kingpins of the drug trade in the island.

The two drug dealers have been identified as Wele Suda and Mohammed Siddik. They are believed to be hiding in foreign countries and Interpol has issued warrants to arrest them.

The Police believe Wele Suda and Siddik are hiding in Pakistan, Dubai or Singapore. It has been revealed that they are remotely controlling the drug trading in Sri Lanka communicating over the phones.
