This detection is a bit smelly.
Surely, no sensible person will carry 300 kgs of Drugs in a van with glass windows, drive around in Colombo and park in Kollupitiya.
The drivers of the vans were arrested; surely, is not difficult to determine who gave instructions for this load?
Why have the persons who gave instruction to the drivers not been arrested?
The chain of supply from Driver to Kingpin can easily be identified and apprehended; why not done?
Was this 300kg load of ‘paang piti’ planted in Kollupitiya car park by persons who quickly claimed credit for this detection and even went to CID for an inspection?
Something smelly here.
Well said, Lalitha,
There is something definitely fish in this raid.
Is this another NAMAL KUMARA project? (just like the fake assassination attempt).
The King is shown inspecting the ‘300 kg of Heroin’ at a CID location without simple Personal Protection Equipment such as a latex glove and an nose mask !!
If you enter a store room containing such a large quantity of Heroin without a mask, you will collapse straightaway from the heroin fumes unless you are a REGULAR USER!
The drivers of the vans were arrested 3 days ago; have the owners of the vans and persons instructing the drivers been arrested? No.
This event is poorly planned. As Lalitha says, the King is claiming false credit for apprehending 300kg of wheat flour!!!!!!
Interesting comments by Lalitha and Kota-Katu.
Please check if the drivers of the white vans are colleagues of Namal Kumara in the P Secretariat?
Also check if the vans belong to the P Secretariat previously used by the Blue regime for abductions!
What Kota Katu says is correct.
Heroin has an acidic, vinegar-like strong odour.
It will be impossible to enter a room (without mechanical ventilation) storing 300kg of Heroin without using your hands to close your nose to avoid the acidic, vinegar-like smell.
I wonder who is cheating whom?
As Lalitha says, this is a load of Wheat Flour to enable the King to claim false credit with the help of Namal Kumara.
Why no arrests for 3 days? It is so easy to identify owners of the vans and take them in for questioning.
3 days gone, nothing done.
Long Live the cheating King.
