Colombo: The Sri Lankan authorities have arrested four people and seized  Rs 2.5 billion worth of drugs which originated from Chinese-controlled Gwadar region of Pakistan, media reports said on Sunday.

The arrests were made from Marawila Thoduwawa area.

The accused were transporting heroin and crystal methamphetamine (ice) to the Sri Lankan boats from the Pak Dhow that originated from Gwadar, reports Zee News.

The involvement of the ISI officials in the drug smuggling network is established as such regular movement of Dhow from Gwadar is not possible without tacit support from the ISI (Pakistan spy agency) and Chinese intelligence officials, the Indian news channel reported.

During the raid, 100 kilograms of heroin and 100 kilograms of ice were reportedly seized.

It is suspected that a drug trafficker named 'Jude' who is hiding in Dubai, has sent the stock of drugs to the country by boats, reports Zee News.
