Police seize night racing young motorcycle gang in Colombo.

A gang of young riders who rode high powered racing motorcycles with engines beyond the legal capacity with altered chassis numbers on the main roads in Colombo 7 was seized by the Cinnamon Gardens Police.

A team of officials from the police traffic control branch armed with information based on several public complaints launched a special operation past midnight on Friday to nab the gang of motorcyclists on Reid Avenue.

The police team led by Cinnamon Gardens Police Traffic Branch Sub Inspector Suraj Abeysekara said, about ten motorcyclists were taken into custody for riding unlawful motorcycles that violated the rules of Department of Motor Traffic pertaining to bikes in Sri Lanka.

Most of the engine and chassis numbers of the seized motorcycles had been tampered with as they were illegally assembled in the country against the DMT rules.
