The Man with the Golden Bum strikes again
Sharif Ahmed of Maynamati Bazar in Burichong of Comilla was apprehended at the airport following a tip-off on Wednesday morning. "Sharif arrived in Dhaka on a Malindo Airlines flight OD162 from Malaysia around 12am," said Customs Intelligence and Investigation Department Director General, Moinul Khan. "Acting on a tip-off, Customs officials kept eye on Sharif and challenged him as his movement was deemed suspicious."
