A woman who was selling heroin has been admitted to the Kandy National Hospital in a critical condition after she swallowed a packet of heroin she was carrying during a police raid in Mulgampola, Kandy.

The 40-year-old woman was out on bail in a case pending in the Kandy High Court on a drug charge. The police received information that this woman was carrying out drug trafficking in a car parked in the Mulgampola area in the early hours of Poson Poya Day.
