Border guards intercept consignment of 90,000 Yaba pills smuggled in from Myanmar

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has nabbed five suspected drug peddlers in Cox's Bazar.

The arrestees have been identified as Md Shamsul Alam, 25, Md Akhter Hossain, 35, Md Hossain, 28, Md Jamir Hossain, 50, and Md Kefayetullah, 30.

Around 90,000 pieces of Yaba pills worth over Tk2.7 crore have been seized from their possession.

Following a tip off that a trawler carrying a huge consignment of counterfeit goods might arrive at Mistri Ghat from Myanmar on Monday, a team from BGB-2 Battalion Teknaf raided an anchored vessel, Col Mohammad Faisal Hasan Khan, the head of the battalion, told the media.

After a thorough search, the BGB personnel seized the huge quantity of Yaba pills hidden inside the oil tank and took the five peddlers on board the vessel into custody.

In an unrelated incident, a patrol team of the BGB-2 Battalion seized some 14,000 pieces of Yaba pills near the Damdamia check post in Teknaf.

Sources said that the BGB personnel signaled a biker to stop for checking at the post but he abandoned the two-wheeler and disappeared in the mountains. A search resulted in the drug haul, the sources said.
