A special operation by the Navy in the Wankaleipadu coastal area in Mannar on March 30 led to the seizure of over 33kg of Kerala cannabis.

The North Central Naval Command had detected a suspicious boat sailing towards the Wankaleipadu beach and upon inspecting it, seized about 33.415kg of Kerala cannabis onboard. The consignment was in 15 packages, the Navy said.

The suspects might have left behind the consignment in fear of the Naval operations. The street value of the cannabis is over Rs. 10 million, the Navy said.

The stock was handed over to the Pesalai Police Station.
