An underworld don who is in an FBI list of most wanted, has been linked to a major drug seizure in Sri Lanka.
A Bangladesh media report said that Dawood Ibrahim, the evil king of the underworld for Islamic gangs has been linked to the drug trade in Sri Lanka.
The heroin, valued at SL Rs 3.3 billion (US $ 18 million) was found in Dehiwala last month and two Bangladeshis were arrested by the Police.
Sri Lankan authorities have named three more Bangladeshi women as part of the historic narcotics seizure, raising the total number of Bangladeshis involved to six.
The heroin seizure originated from Pakistan and the Golden Crescent, but Bangladeshi Islamic gangs appear to have been using Sri Lanka as an eastern distribution hub to Southeast Asia and Australia, the Blitz newspaper reported. (Colombo Gazette)
