The underworld kingpin Gampola Vidanalage Don Samantha Kumara aka ‘Wele Suda’ has been arrested in Pakistan, and deported to Sri Lanka today.
An Interpol Red Notice was issued last year on Wele Suda, one of the major drug traffickers in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka Police Narcotics Bureau said at the time the drug kingpin lives in Peshawar in Pakistan.
The suspect has amassed a massive wealth from drug trafficking and fled the country with his wife last year when police moved on him.
However, the police arrested his wife when she returned to Sri Lanka at a later date.
