A 44-year-old doctor serving in Badulla General Hospital has been arrested by the STF for selling narcotic capsules among schoolchildren.
Police said the doctor was arrested following a tip-off from a private informant.
Accordingly, a team of STF men attached to the Passara camp arrested the suspect while on board a car in the Badulla area.
The STF found 145 narcotic infused capsules in the possession of the doctor without a valid licence.
He was handed over to the Badulla Police for further investigations
