July 31, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police Narcotics Bureau has revealed that the drug kingpins Mohammed Siddik and Wele Suda live in Peshawar in Pakistan.

Sri Lanka police had sought the support of the Pakistan police and International Police (Interpol) to arrest the two suspects who are reportedly handling the drug business in Sri Lanka.

Police sources say that Siddhik is the person who sent the heroin haul of 93 kilograms to Sri Lanka hidden in grinding machines recently. Vigilant officers of Sri Lanka Customs at Orugodawaththa yard seized the drug haul.

Police believe that Mohammed Majik Mohammed Siddhik lives in Peshawar with his wife in a rented house in association with the drug lords there. Siddhik is also believed to travel to Dubai time to time.

Gampola Vidanalage Don Samantha Kumara aka Wele Suda is also believed to live near Siddhik's house in Peshawar, police say.

Both are under arrest warrants of the International Police.

Apart from those two, the Interpol has issued red notices on 12 Sri Lankans who are suspected of drug trafficking and fled the country. Reportedly these suspects live in other countries and operate the illicit trade in Sri Lanka with the support of the local underworld.
