Five customs officers injured after being assaulted by Kuwaiti couple

Five customs officers were injured after being assaulted by a Kuwaiti couple at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) today.

The five officers have been admitted to hospital for treatment following the incident.

The incident took place when the customs officers had requested that a pet dog with the couple be quarantined.

The couple were later arrested over the incident. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. If the pet dog had been immunised against rabies, and the couple had the vaccination certificate with them, there was no need to quarantine the dog. The animal would have been given airline ticket/permission, only if this was available.
