DRUGS DELIVERED BY FOOD DELIVERERS AS WELL

Food deliverers distribute drugs as well!

 

Illegal drugs have been transported across the country by food deliverers on motorbikes during the period when travel restrictions were imposed across the country due to COVID-19 pandemic, the National Dangerous Drugs Control Board (NDDCB) said.

A report prepared by the NDDCB shows that there was no lack of circulation of drugs in the country since the smugglers have adopted special methods during the pandemic.

Motorbikes have been used to transport drugs outside of Colombo to the doorstep under the guise of delivering food.

An increased number of drug users have been identified during the pandemic and most of them were reported from the suburbs including Colombo.
