Sri Lanka's opposition leader  Sajith Premadasa recently raised alarm regarding the online loan mafia operating in the country and even charging interest as high as 300, media reports said.

He asked people not to pay them as the lending process was illegal.

Following the revelation by the minister, the country's Computer Crime Investigation Division has arrested six people, including five Chinese nationals, involved in the crime.

According to reports, the arrested Chinese nationals included three women.
