The police have arrested seven would-be illegal immigrants in Kalmunai, the police media unit said today.
The arrest was made following information received by the police that a group of people were attempting to head to Australia by boat.
Investigations revealed that the seven people are residents of Mullaitivu and aged between 26 and 39 years.
All those arrested will be produced before the Kalmunai Magistrate today, the police media unit said. (Colombo Gazette)
