The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) of Sri Lanka police has taken measures to confiscate all the immovable property of a notorious drug lord.

The property belonging to a drug dealer named `Moratu Vasantha` is worth nearly Rs. 1.5 billion, according to report in the state-owned Daily News.

Moratu Vasantha was reportedly involved in an international drug distribution ring and was distributing heroin and other drugs throughout the country.

The CID has taken measures to confiscate his immovable property which includes an eight-storey building at Wakwella, Galle valued at over Rs. 1.5 billion and also his movable assets including the money in his bank accounts.

However, the suspect has fled the country despite an operation launched by the CID for his arrest.

Moratu Vasantha`s involvement in the drug trade has come to light following the arrest of four suspects in possession of heroin at Hikkaduwa recently. Four other accomplices of the drug kingpin are already in remand custody.
