A 50-year-old Indian who attempted to smuggle 220 grams of narcotics, known as crystal methamphetamine, worth more than Rs.6 million into the country was arrested by the Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB) at the Bandaranaike International Airport last night, Police said.  


PNB officials suspect that the drugs may have been meant to be used in reputed night clubs in Colombo and other urban areas.  

They said the methamphetamine was an expensive drug used in European countries.  

The suspect was produced in the Minuwangoda Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
