Maradana Police to commence probe into death of inmate in PNB custody

 

Maradana Police have commenced an investigation into the death of a suspect arrested by the Police Narcotics Bureau (PNB) and the injury of a police officer.


On 10 January, the PNB arrested a suspect in possession of nearly 15 grams of heroin near the National Vocational Training Institute in Narahenpita, who later revealed that he had obtained the drugs from a resident of Maradana.


The arrestee, identified as Samantha Preethi Kumara, a 42-year-old resident of Hikkaduwa, had asked the officers who had arrested him for some water while being transported to the Maradana Police Station, and had subsequently broken the glass bottle, and injured a police constable accompanying him, the Police Media Unit reported.
