The Special Task Force (STF) of the Sri Lanka Police has been on a roll in its war against drugs in the country.

A number of arrests, and seizures of drugs and weapons were witnessed over the past few months as part of the STF’s mission to quell Sri Lanka’s drug menace, the latest being the crackdown on two underworld drug lords – Makandure Madhush and Jagamuni Sujeewa De Soyza – and their accomplices.

STF Commandant Senior Deputy Inspector General (DIG) M. R. Latiff stated: “There will be more arrests of drug criminals, seizure of weapons, cash and drugs in the next few days…We have already dismantled most of the illegal drug operations. The drug criminals will not be able to move or push their drugs into the market.”
