Police commandos arrested a heroin dealer believed to be a close associate of Wildlife Minister and Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka during a raid carried out in the Minuwangoda police area in the early hours of yesterday.

The STF recovered eight grammes of heroin and two grammes of a banned substance known as ‘ice.’

A senior police official identified the arrested person as Aruna Shantha Attanayake alias ‘police.’

The police commandos apprehended the wanted man allegedly involved in heroin distribution in the Peliyagoda area in the wake of Minister Fonseka raising a privilege issue over a spate of media reports alleging that he associated with some underworld elements.

The STF said that the arrested person had been involved in several shooting incidents in the Peliyagoda area.
