July 11, Colombo: Sri Lanka Navy has apprehended an unknown fishing vessel transporting 60 kg of narcotics in deep see South of Galle.

Subsequent search revealed possession of substances suspected to be narcotics weighing approximately 60 Kg.
The vessel is being escorted to Galle harbor for further investigation.
