Woman arrested with 4 passports at BIA

The officers of Police Narcotics Unit at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in Katunayake have arrested a woman who was in possession of 4 passports concealed within a stock of sarees she had brought from India.

She had arrived at the BIA at around 04.41 a.m. early this morning (21) onboard a SriLankan Airlines flight from Chennai.

Police suspect that the woman might have planned to hand over the relevant passports to human traffickers, in order to illegally migrate to European countries.
