A major narcotics operation is going underway at the southern Addu atoll. According to the Commissioner of Police Mohamed Hameed, a number of individuals has been arrested along with the seizure of a significant amount of narcotics.
In a tweet made just now, Commissioner of Police Mohamed Hameed stated that the Drug Enforcement Depart was working in coordination with the Drugs Intelligence Unit, Divisional Intelligence Department, Marine Police and the Southern Division of the Police service.
This is the second such operation taking place in past few weeks with a massive operation taking place simultaneously in the north and central provinces on the 27th of October 2020. The police are yet to reveal if there is any connections between the two operations.
