ACP Khan adds that part of the operation also includes a lens on crimes linked to alcohol as the festive season often records an increase in alcohol-related crimes.

The Force continues to ramp up its drug raid operation on Kadavu targeting cultivators, peddlers, and those involved in drug trafficking.

Meanwhile, a man from Korokadi in the Northern Division has been arrested following a raid that led to the discovery of a large quantity of rice whiskey at his home yesterday.

The suspect remains in custody as the investigation continues.
