1448 kg of Beedi leaves found floating in sea

During a search conducted in the seas off Pesalai in Mannar, the Navy found a haul of about 1448kg beedi leaves.

During a patrol carried out by the Navy in search of illegal activities at sea, a suspicious package drifting in the seas had been spotted. When searched, 29 such parcels were recovered by the Navy.

The 29 parcels contained about 1448kg of beedi leaves in total.

It is believed that the drug traffickers might have left behind the package, in fear of continuous naval patrols.

The seized stock of beedi leaves will be handed over to Jaffna customs for onward action.
