Property to be confiscated of those sheltering underworld figures  Featured

Senior DIG in charge of the Western Province Deshabandu Tennakoon says they have learnt that drug peddlers are using lodging houses in Colombo as safehouses as operations to nab drug peddlers continue.

DIG Tennakoon says that owners and managers of such lodging houses have been warned not to provide shelter to such criminals.

It has also been emphasised about the importance of using CCTV camera footage and obtaining clearing reports of employees, to reveal the identities of such individuals.

Anyone who deliberately aids or abets underworld or drug activities could face confiscation of their property, the DIG had further said.
