In a bizarre turn of events, a cat that was detained in the main prison of Sri Lanka for allegedly trying to smuggle drugs and cell phone SIM cards has escaped.
As per a police official, the jail intelligence officials at the high-security Welikada Prison spotted the cat on Saturday.
The official also mentioned that nearly two grams of heroin, a memory chip along with two sims cards were found in a plastic bag which was tied around the animal's neck.
Reportedly, the cat escaped from the prison room where it was kept on Sunday.
In recent weeks, the prison had reported a hike in cases of people throwing small packets containing drugs, cell phones and even phone chargers over the walls.
Surprisingly, this incident is not one-of-its-kind. Last week, police also captured an eagle that was allegedly used by drug traffickers to circulate narcotics in a suburb of Colombo.
Sri Lanka has found itself in the middle of a major drug problem. A few anti-narcotics detectives were also involved in selling drugs that were confiscated earlier.
