Ahmed Sameer, president of the local government council of Kamadhoo island in Baa atoll, has been arrested in a drug operation.
A resident of the island told RaajjeMV, under the condition of anonymity, that Sameer was arrested at 9:00pm on Friday.
The source said police officers arrested Sameer from the ferry terminal in Hulhumalé after having seen him ‘discard’ a rubber packet.
